Henry comes to Livonia

to map

1205

After fighting the Oeselians on the sea, the crusaders reached Riga in the summer of 1205. Because the description of this campaign is depicted in much more detail than the previous ones, it is highly likely that from that time on, Henry was following the events from the spot.
When he arrived, he must have been about 17-18 years old, and a simple monk.
