Alice in Trivialand - Week of March 1

In the late eleventh century, what two Catalan noblemen had a falling out over an inheritance dispute that led to the one dying in a "hunting accident" and the other ceding the inheritance to the dead man's son before undertaking a pilgrimage to Jerusalem that coincided with the First Crusade?

As there were no correct responses, the following hint is provided: The two individuals in question were twin brothers. The question was also edited slightly as it originally read "dead man's brother" rather than "dead man's son," and while I could make a technical argument for that being true, it was unfortunately a confusing mistake.
