On August 12, 1099 AD Godfrey led an army, with the True Cross carried in the vanguard, against the Fatimid army at the Battle of Ascalon. The crusaders were successful, but following the victory, the majority of them considered their crusading vows to have been fulfilled, and all but a few hundred knights returned home. Nevertheless, their victory paved the way for the establishment of the Kingdom of Jerusalem.

The siege quickly became legendary and in the 12th century it was the subject of the Chanson de Jerusalem, a major chanson de geste in the Crusade cycle.

@Anno Domini.

AD is AFTER Jesus was born.

BC is BEFORE Jesus was born.

AD comes from Latin Anno Domini meaning "In the year of Our Lord" BC comes from Before Christ.
