Battle of Battle of Al Mansurah
Battle of Battle of Al Mansurah
The Seventh Crusade was prosecuted by King Louis IX in response to yet another loss of Jerusalem. His goal was similar to that endorsed by Richard I: win Jerusalem by first occupying Ayyubid Egypt. To that end, Louis won a contested amphibious landing in Egypt on 5 Jun 1249 and occupied Damietta while his opponent, Fakhr al-Din, fell back on Mansoura. To avoid the Nile flood season Louis did not move to al-Din until November; however an advance on his armies did not occur until 8 Feb 1250 when a mounted contingent crossed the Tanis and fell upon the Ayyubid camp at dawn. The undisciplined charge, led by the king's brother, Robert, continued into Mansoura where it was cut apart by a garrison of Mamluks. Having beaten back that counterattack, Louis clung stubbornly to his position until disease and starvation forced a retreat in April. The retreat turned into a slaughter and Louis, himself suffering from dysentery, was captured and subsequently ransomed. The victory gave impetus to a growing Mamluk hegemony in the Levant.

Sack of Constantinople
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.

Battle of Lewes
Battle of Lewes
In the Second Barons' War, the Battle of Lewes was the high water mark in the career of Simon de Montfort, earl of Leicester. Leicester had become the focus of reform of royal power since the adoption of the Provisions of Oxford in 1258 and power seesawed between court and country during the years that followed. At Lewes, Leicester's smaller force was able to defeat Henry when Prince Edward chased a contingent of Leicester's force from the field, exposing his father's flank. The royals were bagged and Henry was reduced to Simon's cipher, at least until the wheel turned at Evesham.

How beautiful upon the mountains
are the feet of him who brings good news,
who publishes peace, who brings good news of happiness,
who publishes salvation,
who says to Zion, “Your God reigns.”
