Albigensian Crusade

Coat of arms of the Counts of Toulouse
  • January 14th : After several months of siege of the city of Carcassonne by Occitan troops under the leadership of Count Raymond VII of Toulouse and Provence and Vice Count Raimund II Trencavel of Carcassonne , Archbishop Arnaud Amaury of Narbonne brokered a peace treaty with the crusaders who were trapped. Amaury de Montfort signs the deed of surrender on the banks of the Aude and leaves the Languedoc with the last twenty crusaders . The Albigensian Crusade thus failed after 15 years. In the period that followed, the old Occitan landlords were able to return to their lands from which they had been driven out by the crusaders in previous years. Raimund VII. Can also largely liberate the territory of his ancestors from the occupiers by the end of the year. So he again subjugates the cities of Albi and Agde . Only after pressure from Archbishop Arnaud Amaury does he give the bishop of Agde back the rule of the city in the form of a vice-county, now of course as his feudal lord.
  • January: The new French King Louis VIII votes to one of Pope Honorius III. demanded renewed crusade against the Cathars, but lays down extensive conditions in a memorandum: He demands sole authority over the crusade, and all conquered land is to be completely and forever his and his heirs as property.
