Pagan the Butler

Pagan the Butler (French: Payen le Bouteiller) (died 1148) was a Crusader lord in the Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem. Around 1120, he first appears as the butler of Baldwin II.

In 1134, King Fulk deprived the rebellious Roman of Le Puy of the fief of Oultrejordain and granted it to Pagan. Pagan remained butler until 1136. Pagan ruled from the castle of Montréal, but during his reign, he began the construction of the great castle of Kerak. He was succeeded by his nephew Maurice.
