The crusader fleet on their way to Africa, illustration from the Chronicles of Jean Froissart , 15th century
  • Beginning of July: A French - Genoese fleet consisting of around 100 galleys sets sail under the command of Louis II. De Bourbon . The goal of the company, which is declared a crusade by both the Roman Pope Boniface VIII and the Avignonese antipope Clement VII , is the port city of Mahdia in the Hafsid Empire in Ifrīqiya in North Africa , which has long been a base for Muslim pirate trips and the associated ones Human trafficking works. After arriving in late July, the city is under siege. When a Saracen relief army marches, however, a grueling positional war develops. Epidemics break out in the crusader camp and morale sinks to a rock bottom.
  • Mid-September: The crusade against Mahdia ends with a ten-year armistice, the city of Mahdia is supposed to pay its taxes to Genoa for fifteen years instead of to the Hafsid caliphs in Tunis . The crusaders leave North Africa in late September. On the way back, some ports in Sardinia that served as a supply base for the pirates are attacked, including Cagliari for Genoa.
