Melisande – The Forgotten Queen – In Hebrew

Many know about the famous Crusader kings Godfrey and Baldwin. But did you know about the very special queen, Melisende? This tour focuses specifically on the unique character of Queen Melisende who ruled the Crusader Kingdom in the middle of the 12th century. The tour begins at her unmarked grave at the Tomb of Mary and continues to the Church of St. Anne which she built. It continues to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher that underwent a renovation during Melisende’s reign, shaping its appearance until today. On the way to the Tower of David, the tour passes through the Crusader market associated with her, and finishes at the Tower of David, where Melisende finished her reign as Queen of Jerusalem.
