1202 - 1204 - 4th Crusade



Although the Crusades are not my domain at all and I have never shown any particular interest in this phenomenon, when writing the Best of the Knights (in which I wrote an introduction and additions concerning St. Francis of Assisi and St. Louis IX) article forced me to write an article about the reason for the crusades and I decided to describe these expeditions very briefly.

IV. crusade

In 1198, the Italian aristocrat Lotario, Count Segni ( 1160–1246 ), was elected the new pope. He sat on Peter's throne as Innocent III. ( 1198–1216 ). Shortly after his enthronement, he began to push for the sending of another, fourth, crusade to the Holy Land.
