More an interesting snippet of trivia that anything else BUT... did you know that Urban was also the name of a papal lineage in the medieval period? The Crusades were triggered largely by a speech by Pope Urban II at Clermont, France in 1095.
After hearing about the Turkish incursions into the Christian East, Pope Urban II set about preaching the morality of crusading.
