King Sigurd I of Norway led a group to Jerusalem, although some authorities call it a pilgrimage rather than a crusade (the difference being a matter of intent).
The Norwegian Crusade, led by Norwegian King Sigurd I, was a crusade or a pilgrimage (sources differ) that lasted from 1107 to 1111, in the aftermath of the First Crusade. The Norwegian Crusade marks the first time a European king personally went to the Holy Land.
