Bohemond IV (1201 - 1232)
Bohemond the One-Eyed, French Bohemond le Borgne count of Tripoli (1187–1233) and prince of Antioch (1201–16, 1219–33). The younger son of Bohemond III and Orguilleuse, he became count of Tripoli in 1187 and succeeded his father in the principality of Antioch to the exclusion of his nephew Raymond Ruben in 1201. In 1216 Raymond seized control while Bohemond was off in Tripoli, but he was deposed in 1219 and died the following year. Bohemond reigned in Antioch and Tripoli until his own death.
