The Crusades is usually talked about as a conflict between Christians and Muslims, but the Christians themselves were split and frequently attacked each other to gain more power. Catholic crusaders sacked Constantinople at the end of the Fourth Crusade and divided Byzantine land among themselves. What year did this occur? (Hint: ends in even number)
In a mutiny, Crusaders sacked Constantinople, and the Latin Church took advantage of this situation to control more Byzantine land.
