An Ungodly War
The Sack of Constantinople & the Fourth CrusadeBook - 2000
The Fourth Crusade (1202-4) was proclaimed by Innocent IV with the aim of recovering the Holy Places in Palestine. However, the Crusade was financed by the Venetians and at once was diverted to their own ends. In April 1204 this led to the sack of Constantinople, the greatest city in Christendom, and the establishment of a Latin Empire there for the next few decades.
