The orders grew rapidly and acquired castles at strategic points in the kingdom and in the northern states. They maintained permanent garrisons in these castles and supplemented the otherwise inadequate forces of the barons and king.
Moreover, because they were soon established in Europe as well, they became international organizations. Virtually independent, sanctioned and constantly supported by the papacy, and exempt from local ecclesiastical jurisdiction, they aroused the jealousy of the clergy and constituted a serious challenge to royal authority.
The Order of Precedence for the Kingdom of Æthelmearc
The Crusaders introduced into the conquered lands a Latin ecclesiastical organization and hierarchy. The Greek patriarch of Antioch was removed, and all subsequent incumbents were Latin except in one brief period before , when imperial pressure brought about the installation of a Greek. The Eastern Orthodox patriarch in Jerusalem left before the conquest and died soon after.
All his successors were Latin. Under Latin jurisdiction were the entire Latin population as well as those natives who remained Orthodox—Greeks in Antioch and Greeks or Syrians Melchites in Jerusalem. Beyond that jurisdiction were a larger number of non- Chalcedonians both Syriac and Armenian and some few members of the Assyrian Church of the East so-called Nestorians , all adherents of doctrines that had deviated from the decisions of 5th-century ecumenical councils.
A number of Maronites of the Lebanon region accepted the Latin obedience late in the 12th century. After some initial confusion, the native hierarchies were able to resume their functions. As in the West, the church had its own courts and possessed large properties. But each ecclesiastical domain was required to furnish soldiers, and there were considerable charitable foundations.
The hierarchy of the Latin states was an integral part of the church of the West. Papal legates regularly visited the East, and bishops from the Crusader states attended the third Lateran Council in Western monastic orders also appeared in the Crusader states.
In addition to the nobles and their families who had settled in the kingdom, a substantially larger number of persons were classified as bourgeois. A small number had arrived with the First Crusade; however, most were later immigrants from Europe, representing nearly every nationality but predominantly from rural southern France. In the East they became town dwellers, though a few were agriculturalists—proprietors of small estates, rarely themselves tillers of the soil, inhabiting the more modest towns.
It appears some immigrants, perhaps poor pilgrims who remained, failed to obtain a reasonably settled status and could not afford the relatively small ransom offered by Saladin in The townspeople of the First Kingdom did not, like their counterparts in Europe, aspire to political autonomy. There were no communal movements in the 12th century. The bourgeois were, therefore, subject to a king or seigneur. Some did military service as sergeants—i. The Italians had acquired exceptional privileges in the ports because they supplied the indispensable naval aid and shipping essential to regular contact with Europe.
These privileges usually included a quarter that they maintained as a virtually independent enclave. European settlers in the Crusader states, however, were only a small minority of the population. If the early Crusaders were ruthless, their successors, except for occasional outbursts during campaigns, were remarkably tolerant and flexible in dealing with the diverse sectors of the local population.
Muslim town dwellers who had not fled were captured and put to menial tasks. Baptism brought with it immediate freedom. Few Muslims were slaves. Most of those who remained were peasants who for centuries had been a large part of the rural population and who were permitted to retain their holdings, subject to fiscal impositions not unlike those of the European serf and usually identical to those originally levied by their former proprietors on all non-Muslims.
Muslim nomads, or Bedouin , who from time immemorial had moved their herds with the changing seasons, were granted their traditional rights of pasturage by the king.

Most mosques were appropriated during the conquest, but some were restored, and no attempt was made to restrict Muslim religious observance. Occasionally a mihrab prayer niche was retained for Muslim worshipers in a church that had formerly been a mosque. The tolerance of the Franks, noted by Arab visitors, often surprised and disturbed newcomers from the West.
Native Christians were governed according to the Assizes of the Court of the Bourgeois. Each national group retained its institutions. The Jewish community of Palestine, which had declined in the 11th century, was drastically reduced by the First Crusade. As the Latin kingdom settled into a routine of government, however, the situation improved. Indeed, there is reason to believe that the later, more stable regime made possible a not-inconsiderable Jewish immigration—not, it seems, as in earlier times, from the neighbouring lands of the Middle East but from Europe.
Thus, by the s the Crusader states of Outremer , as the area of Latin settlement came to be called, had developed well-established governments. With allowance made for regional differences e.
