but if they passed from Greece they would get some ouzo
Didn't each crusade practically pass through Constantinople? To ship across to Asia Minor?
Anyway, the "People's crusade" of late 11th century really got fed well, probably given ouzo too I imagine, and shipped across.. Very smart thinking by the Greeks, because these crazy people would have destroyed a lot of the city if they were let in. Instead they were fed, and sent on their way, to the crazy drunk rabble was slaughtered by Seljuk Turks :)
you forgetting what the OP of this thread asked for? I was simply responding to the original question not butting in on your debate
Thanks for trying to keep this on topic shorthair, appreciate the suggestions too...
