Nothing else is recognized of his life except that he was the writer of a Historia Hierosolymitanae expeditionis, or Chronicon Hierosolymilanum de betto sacro, a history in 12 books, recorded between 1125 and 1150. This history starts at the time of the council of Clermont, covers the fortunes of the first crusade and the early history of the Latin kingdom of Jerusalem, and finishes somewhat abruptly in 1121.
It was better known during the middle ages, and was mostly used by William, archbishop of Tyre, for the first six books of his Belli sacri historia. In modern times its historical rate has been severely impugned, but the finding of fact of the best scholarship seems to be that in common it forms a true record of the issues of the first crusade, although containing some identified matter. Albert never seen the Holy Land, but he appears to have had a significant amount of intercourse with returned crusaders, and to have had admission to valuable correspondence. The first version of the history was published at Helmstadt in 1584, and a good edition is in the (RHC) Recueil des historiens des croisades, tome iv. (France-Paris, 1841).
