This tapestry is taken from a fresco painted by an artist known only as "Master of La Manta" depicting Godfrey of Bouillon and other celebrated characters taken from the Middle Ages. In 1096, when the Pope issued his degree to begin the first Crusade, it was Godfrey of Bouillon who stepped forward to lead the French knights to seize Jerusalem. The Nine Worthies of the original fresco included Hector, Alexander the Great, Julius Caesar, Joshua, David, Judas Maccabeus, King Arthus, Charlemagne and Godfrey dr Buillon. After a conquering the city, Godfrey was offered the title King of Jerusalem, but he turned it down. Whether it was piety or the desire to avoid a conflict with his king, Godfrey instead chose the title Defender of the Holy Sepulchre, for he saw himself as a mere custodian of the holy city. This is an exquisitely detailed tapestry, showing the characters amongst lush green foliage, each with their heraldic shields. The original fresco can still be seen at Manta Castle in Northern Italy. This tapestry is lined and has a tunnel for easy hanging.
