The Second Crusade (1147-1150) was the second major crusade launched from Europe. It was started in response to the fall of the County of Edessa in 1144 to the forces of Zengi. The Second Crusade was announced by Pope Eugene III. The initial response to the new crusade bull was poor, and it had to be reissued when it was clear that Louis VII of France would be taking part in the expedition. It was the first of the crusades to be led by European kings, Louis and Conrad III of Germany. The armies of the two kings marched separately across Europe. After crossing Byzantine territory into Anatolia, both armies were separately defeated by the Seljuk Turks.
