The Peasants Crusade (1096-1096) was rallied in response to the same problems that precipitated the First Crusade. Two preachers called the peasants of France to leave their fields and go to fight in the Holy Land: Peter the Hermit and Walter the Penniless. Famine, civil war, and sickness made rural France an unpleasant place in which to live, so the peasants went quite willingly in droves. This Crusade was unorganized, and many of the people who went had no idea what they were doing, where they were going, or what they were in for. The nobility of England who passed by these Crusaders viewed them "with contempt as persons who had altogether lost their wits," according to Ekkhard of Aurach in Hierosolymita (ca. 1101). The deeds of any peasants who did manage to fight with the noble Crusaders of the First Crusade were considered part of that First Crusade.
