Arabs called all Europeans as Franks. Obviously they were wrong. But it does not mean that European community were absent. Though it wasnt so entire as Franks community.

Anna Comnena writing of the crusaders in Alexiad frequently refers to Celts to mean Franks, because she is writing in terms the citizens of Athens would understand. She is atticising.
