  Religious Military Orders - by Brad A. Sand and Dr. Carl Edwin Lindgren
Baldwin IV provided that his nephew become his heir and if the boy should die before he reached the age of ten, the succession to the throne would be decided by the four powers of Christendom: the pope, the Holy Roman Emperor, the king of France and the king of England.
Joscelin III de Courtenay rushed word to the Princess Sibylla, and her husband Guy de Lusignan.

  Joscelin III of Edessa - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Joscelin III of Edessa (died 1200) was the titular Count of Edessa 1159–1200.
Joscelin played little role in the Third Crusade and the politics of the Kingdom in the 1190s; he died at some point between 1190-1200.
Joscelin's seigneurie was bought from his daughters by Hermann of Salza, the master of the Teutonic Knights, in 1220.

 County of Edessa
Joscelin was taken prisoner once again in 1122; when Baldwin came to rescue him, he too was captured, and Jerusalem was left without its king.
Joscelin was killed in battle in 1131 and was succeeded by his son Joscelin II.
Joscelin continued to rule in his lands west of the Euphrates, centered around Turbessel, until 1149, when he was captured in battle by Zengi's son Nur ad-Din, and soon died.

 The History of the Decline and Fall of The Roman Empire - Vol 6 - Chapter LXI Part IV
From the reign of Robert, the son of Hugh Capet, the barons of Courtenay are conspicuous among the immediate vassals of the crown; and Joscelin, the grandson of Atho and a noble dame, is enrolled among the heroes of the first crusade.
While Joscelin reigned beyond the Euphrates, his elder brother Milo, the son of Joscelin, the son of Atho, continued, near the Seine, to possess the castle of their fathers, which was at length inherited by Rainaud, or Reginald, the youngest of his three sons.
The barons of Courtenay must have stood high in their own estimation, and in that of the world, since they could impose on the son of a king the obligation of adopting for himself and all his descendants the name and arms of their daughter and his wife.

She was the eldest daughter of Amalric I of Jerusalem and Agnes of Courtenay and sister of Baldwin IV.
Raymond III of Tripoli, in his capacity as regent during Baldwin's minority (and beyond, as the king suffered from leprosy), arranged for Sibylla to marry William Longsword of Montferrat, the newly created count of Jaffa and Ascalon.
She inherited her mother's factional supporters, the Courtenay family (the former dynasty of the County of Edessa) and their allies and vassals, while her rivals were led by the Ibelin family and the dowager queen in Nablus.

 County of Edessa - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Baldwin of Bourcq married Morphia, a daughter of Gabriel of Melitene, and Joscelin of Courtenay married a daughter of Constantine.
Joscelin continued to rule his lands west of the Euphrates, and he also managed to take advantage of the death of Zengi in September 1146 to regain and hold briefly his old capital.
It then was a special holding of Courtenay counts of Edessa, and again became their seat after the loss of the city of Edessa.

 REDVERS and COURTENAY Families of early England - Pat Patterson's Genealogy Pages
The first Courtenay on record was "Atho," a French Knight, universally admitted to have been of nameless origin, who built a castle at Courtenay, a small town in the Gatenois, sixty miles from Paris, early in the eleventh century, and took his name from his residence.
The Courtenays, as descendants of Mary de Redvers, daughter of the sixth earl, naturally laid claim to the earldom of Devon, and the whole of the Redvers property, upon the death of Countess Isabella.
Peter of Courtenay had, as we have seen, ascended the throne of Constantinople in 1217, but two years later he had died in captivity, and during the succeeding years, and until their final expulsion in 1261, his sons had certainly done nothing to redeem the prestige of their family.

Courtenay, in the election of Nemours in the Isle de France, is a town of 900 inhabitants, with the remains of a castle, (Melanges tires d’une Grande Bibliotheque, tom.
Joscelin neglected the defence of the Christian frontier beyond the Euphrates.
Their painful and anxious situation was alleviated by the pride of conscious virtue: they sternly rejected the temptations of fortune and favor; and a dying Courtenay would have sacrificed his son, if the youth could have renounced, for any temporal interest, the right and title of a legitimate prince of the blood of France.

Joscelin de Courtenay is said to have married a daughter of a count Geoffroy Férreol ["Joscelinus [de Cortinaco] desponsavit filiam comitis Gaufridi Foërole", Ex Continuatione Aimoni, RHF 11- 276].
Although the medieval sources agree that the father of Geoffroy III and Foulques IV was a count of Gâtinais (or of Château-Landon, the main stronghold of the region), they disagree in giving his name as either Aubri (Albericus) or Geoffroy (Gaufridus, Gosfredus, etc.).

The first of these, Philip of Courtenay, who derived from his mother the inheritance of Namur, had the wisdom to prefer the substance of a marquisate to the shadow of an empire; and on his refusal, Robert, the second of the sons of Peter and Yolande, was called to the throne of Constantinople.
In the seven years of his brother's reign, Baldwin of Courtenay had not emerged from a state of childhood, and the barons of Romania felt the strong necessity of placing the sceptre in the hands of a man and a hero.
The house of Courtenay was represented in the female line by successive alliances, till the title of emperor of Constantinople, too bulky and sonorous for a private name, modestly expired in silence and oblivion.

I note that Joscelin was from the English House of Courtenay, and may therefore have been acting as the hand of the English king, Henry I. As we shall see, Henry certainly had a motive for not seeing Eustace III on the Jerusalem throne.
Joscelin and Baldwin joined forces to fight against the Muslims, with the "Italian" Normans still in support; in fact, Bohemund II (Guiscard's grandson) had married a daughter of Baldwin II in 1126...so we see that Viking blood was yet vying for the Jerusalem throne.
Recall that Joscelin over in the Holy Land had convinced the leadership of Jerusalem to reject Eustace III in favor of Baldwin II as king of Jerusalem.

To balance this, the king turned from time to time to his uncle, Joscelin III of Edessa, after he was ransomed in 1176: as his maternal kin, the Courtenay family had no claim to the throne.
