For those not familiar with the Crusades, it were a series of religiously sanctioned military campaigns waged by many Europe, especially the Franks of France and the Holy Roman Empire during the 11th to 15th century, in the name of Christianity.

In 1228 there was as a mostly non-violent attempt to regain control of Jerusalem. This happened 7 years after the failed 5th Crusade and became known as the 6th Crusade. It is during that time, through diplomatic maneuvering, that Frederick II, the Holy Roman Emperor, succeeded in regaining control of Jerusalem and surrounding areas for no less than 15 years.
