Example text

During the Third Crusade the Byzantine army actively obstructed the crusaders’ passage. Frederick i had to force his way through the Balkans and across the Bosporus. So, crusaders made their appearance repeatedly in Byzantine lands in the 12th century— but they were in transit. This was going to change with the Fourth Crusade, which was diverted from its aim of reclaiming Jerusalem and ended up seizing Constantinople in 1204. A number of Latin states were then set up in the formerly imperial territories.

Crusading activity provides a framework which encompasses such wider forces and trends, applicable to the whole of Romania, and which connects them to the situation in the rest of Europe. The second reason is precisely this pan-European scope, which extends beyond Romania, and links its history with developments elsewhere in the centre and the peripheries of medieval Europe. 4 It can hardly be doubted that the crusades played a role in isolating the empire on the diplomatic level, and in 1204 they resulted in a direct military blow at the political order of Byzantium.
