The Second Crusade (1145-1149) included three different campaigns in the Baltic, the Iberian Peninsula and the Holy Land and was called in response to the fall of the county of Edessa.

This crusade involved a failed siege of Damascus. It is also notable for the involvement of Bernard of Clairvaux, and Eleanor of Aquitaine, who travelled with her husband, Louis VII.
