Politics and world events


  • Simon de Montfort continues the Albigensian Crusade in southern France. During the spring he subdues most of the places that have resisted over the winter. In Minerve he burns 400 Cathars who refuse to convert. In Bram he had 100 citizens' eyes gouged out and sent them to the resistance nest of the knight Pierre Roger de Cabaret . Through his brutal approach, he also incites those Occitan nobles who have remained loyal to the crusade against the crusade. Count Raimund VI. of Toulouse terminates his collaboration and is instead of Pope Innocent III. again excommunicated. Many of the cities already conquered rebel again in winter.

Holy Roman Empire / Italy

  • February: King Frederick II of Sicily dismisses his Chancellor Walter von Pagliara .
  • After his coronation, Emperor Otto IV goes on a course of confrontation with Pope Innocent III. : In February he enfeoffs Diepold von Schweinspeunt with the Duchy of Spoleto , over which the Pope is actually entitled to feudal lordship. When Apulian barons ask him for support against the Hohenstaufen Friedrich II , he decides to launch a campaign against the Kingdom of Sicily in order to reunite the two empires under one rule.
  • November 18 : Pope Innocent III. excommunicated the emperor who was already anathema . Nevertheless, the Welf moves further south and winters in Capua .
  • The Brandenburg tithe dispute between the Margraves of Brandenburg and the Bishops of Brandenburg begins. Since their reconquest of Brandenburg in 1157, the margraves consider the bishops of Brandenburg to be beneficiaries of the restored diocese without their own contribution. Since then they have therefore more or less unspokenly claimed the prerogative and thus also essential parts of the church tithe as payment for the services they rendered to Christianize the country. The church sees itself cheated of the church tithe to which it is entitled.
