Politics and world events
Friedrich Barbarossa's fourth march to Italy
- March: Northern Italian cities that were previously hostile to one another come together in the Lombard League to thwart the Italian policy of Emperor Friedrich I Barbarossa . The trigger is Friedrich's move to Italy , which began in the previous year , for which extensive and in this form previously unusual taxes and duties are levied.
- May 29th : Archbishops Christian von Mainz and Rainald von Dassel , fighting for Emperor Friedrich I , defeat an urban Roman contingent and their allies in the battle of Tusculum . Friedrich himself reached Rome on July 20 , where 10 days later he met Paschal III. as antipope to Alexander III. and lets himself be crowned emperor by him. Alexander flees to Benevento .
- August: An epidemic of dysentery breaks out in Friedrich's army camp, fueled by the heat, to which numerous allies fall victim.
- December 1 : The Lombard League merges with the Veronese League , founded in 1164, which pursues the same goals. This is considered the actual founding date of the federal government. The imperial administration in imperial Italy collapses, only the cities of Novara , Vercelli and Pavia remain on the side of the emperor, who has to leave hastily and flee across the Alps disguised as a groom.
- July 8th : In the battle of Sirmium an army of the Kingdom of Hungary is defeated by the troops of the Byzantine Empire under Andronikos Kontostephanos . King Stephan III subsequently makes peace with Emperor Manuel I Komnenos in Belgrade and has to cede Croatia and Dalmatia . Hungary must also pay a tribute and host hostages to secure the peace treaty.
- Amalric I. , King of Jerusalem , marries his second wife Maria Comnena , great-niece of the Byzantine Emperor Manuel I. In the same year it falls to no avail in the second time Fatimid under vizier Shawar ruled Egypt one.
