      BIOGRAPHY
      Boemund was born in 1107, the son of Boemund I, prince of Antioch, prince of Tarente and Constance de France, daughter of Philippe I, king of France and Bertha of Holland. He succeeded his father in 1111 in his Italian possessions, under the regency of his mother. He appointed as administrator of his Italian lands either the Pope or Alessandro, conte di Conversano, and sailed from Otranto for Palestine in September 1126. He was invested as Boemund II, prince of Antioch in October 1126 by Baudouin II, king of Jerusalem. He captured Kafartab from the emir of Homs at the end of 1126.

      In the autumn of 1126 Boemund married Alix de Jerusalem, daughter of Baudouin II du Bourg, king of Jerusalem and Morfia de Melitene. Boemund and Alix had a daughter Constance, who would marry twice and have progeny.

      Boemund invaded the territories of Leo I, Lord of the Mountains (Armenia-Rupen) in February 1130, but his forces were massacred near Mamistra by the Danishmend emir Ghazi with whom Leo had entered into an alliance. The Danishmend emir had Boemund's head embalmed and sent it as a gift to the caliph.
