In uncovering the identity of Queen Melisende we must look at the many factors shaping her life. Some facts we know: her mother was an Armenian princess, her father was a French Crusader. She was born in Edessa, into her mother’s family which had lived there for generations. She must have been highly influenced by the Armenian culture of her mother, as those relatives would have been close by during the early years of her life. She was surrounded too by her father’s ‘family’, those Crusaders who were his comrades, many of whom were also his relations.
