Mar or Mor (as pronounced respectively in eastern and western dialects, from Syriac: ܡܪܝ, Mār(y), written with a silent final yodh) is a title of respect in Syriac, literally meaning 'my lord'. It is given to all saints and is also used before Christian name of bishops.. The corresponding feminine form given to women saints is Mart or Mort (Syriac: ܡܪܬܝ, Mārt(y)). The title is placed before the Christian name, as in Mar Aprem/Mor Afrem and Mart/Mort Maryam. This is the original meaning of the name Martha 'A Lady'..The nearby Lake Bardawil apparently derives its name from Baldwin..The Historia Hierosolymitana (Latin for "History of Jerusalem") of Fulcher, who had accompanied Baldwin to Edessa as Baldwin's chaplain, and had lived in Jerusalem during his reign, is the primary source for Baldwin's career...In Mishnaic Hebrew through to date this Aramaic word is pronounced [mar] (Hebrew: מָר), and it is used as a formal way of addressing or referring to a male person. In Rabbanical circles of Jews from the Middle East, the Aramaic word מָרָן (Aramaic: our lord) is a title to a highly appreciated Rabbis, such as Ovadia Yosef, the spiritual leader of Shas party..The Pope of Rome is referred to as Mar Papa by the Nasranis (Saint Thomas Christians) of India..

Baldwin I of Jerusalem, formerly Baldwin I of Edessa, born Baldwin of Boulogne (French: Baudouin de Boulogne), 1058?– 2 April 1118, was one of the leaders of the First Crusade, who became the first Count of Edessa and then the second ruler and first titled King of Jerusalem. He was the brother of Godfrey of Bouillon, who was the first ruler of the crusader state of Jerusalem, although Godfrey refused the title of 'king' which Baldwin accepted..In 1117 Baldwin fell ill. He was convinced that the sickness was due to his bigamous marriage to Adelaide, and in response Adelaide was sent back to Sicily, much to her disgust. Baldwin recovered, however, and in 1118 he marched into Egypt and plundered Farama. According to Fulcher of Chartres..

"Then one day he went walking along the river which the Greeks call the Nile and the Hebrews the Gihon, near the city, enjoying himself with some of his friends. Some of the knights very skillfully used their lances to spear the fish found there and carried them to their camp near the city and ate them. Then the king felt within himself the renewed pangs of an old wound and was most seriously weakened"..As 17th century historian Thomas Fuller remarked more succinctly, Baldwin "caught many fish, and his death in eating them"..These species are found in disjunct tropical regions of South America (1 species), Central Africa (three species) and Southeast Asia (25 species)...This neurotoxin is found primarily in the ovaries and liver, although smaller amounts exist in the intestines and skin,and trace amounts in muscle..

Baldwin IV of Jerusalem (1161 – 16 March 1185[1]), called the Leper or the Leprous, the son of Amalric I of Jerusalem and his first wife, Agnes of Courtenay, was king of Jerusalem from 1174 to 1185. His full sister was Queen Sibylla of Jerusalem and his nephew through this sister was the child-king Baldwin V (who succeeded him). He had a half sister through his father's second marriage to Maria Comnena - Queen Isabella I of Jerusalem..Baldwin IV was educated by the historian William of Tyre (later Archbishop of Tyre and Chancellor of the kingdom), who made a disturbing discovery about the prince: he and his friends were playing one day, attempting to injure each other by driving their fingernails into each other's arms, but Baldwin felt no pain.. William immediately recognized this as a sign of serious illness, but it was not conclusively identified as leprosy until a few years later; the onset of puberty accelerated his disease, in its most serious lepromatous form..Though often suffering from the effects of leprosy and ruling with regency governments, Baldwin was able to maintain himself as king for much longer than otherwise might have been expected.. As had been decided, Baldwin V succeeded his uncle, with Raymond of Tripoli as regent..The obscure variant Marya or Moryo (Syriac: ܡܪܝܐ, Māryā) is used in the Peshitta Old Testament to render the Tetragrammaton...
