    Sack of Constantinople
    The Forth Crusade was conceived by Pope Innocent III, endorsed by the houses of Blois, Champagne and Flandres, and ultimately co-opted by the Doge of Venice, Enrico Dandalo. The French ran up an impressive bill with the Venetians so a deal was struck to go crusading if the city's rivals could be dealt with first. This included the Byzantines. Constantinople was subjected to three days of rape and rapine, the Greek royals were ousted and the Empire of Romania (or Latin Empire) was proclaimed. The Crusaders never made it to the Holy Land.
