The First Crusade was inaugurated by the invitation of the Pope Urban II in the Council of Clermont in November 27th, 1095. Influential propagandas of the clergy among whom the leading figure was Piyer Lermit moved the people and a great army was recruited in a short time. It was composed of unprofessional grups who sought solely booty and moved without waiting the main body and arrived Constantinople in August 1st, 1096. Numerous crusaders caused a great disorder and Byzantine emperor Alexius transferred them to Anatolia and settled in Civitot. Thus they reached to the border of Anatolian Seljukids and marched near the capital city, Nicaea and gave a big damage on the region. Seljukid army had a struggle with the Crusaders in the Drakon Valley and got a victory.
