Arslan. The Egyptians fled without attempting to oppose the advancing army, and Emir Tutush was welcomed by Atsiz at the city-gate. Jealous, doubtless, of his subordinate's previous victories and growing influence, the prince commanded him to be seized and executed upon the spot, —alleging, as an excuse for the barbarous act, that the general had been wanting in respect, and had not awarded him the reception to which his rank entitled him. The Emir Tutush now assumed the post of governor-general of Syria, and assigned that of Jerusalem and Palestine to a Turkish chief, named Urtuk ibn Eksek, who remained in authority until A.D. 1091. Urtuk was succeeded by his two sons, Elgbizi and Sukrnan, who ruled Jerusalem until the assassination of Tutush, at Damascus, in A.D. 1095. Taking advantage of the disturbances which followed upon this event, the Fatimite caliph of Egypt, El Most'afla Billah, sent his general, Afdhal el Jernali, with a large force, into Syria. Damascus yielded without a blow in the month of July 1096, and Syria arid Palestine remained for some time afterwards in the hands of the Egyptian government.
