    Fourth Crusade is hilarious. Them Venetians back-stab europe for the next 500 years. They gave maps to Mongols and sold information to the Turks :russ:

    They may have sold out their Eastern Orthodox cousins to oblivion, but you can't knock their hustle for $

    Btw, a large portion of the loot/booty ended up in Venice, including the famed Horses of Saint Mark:

    Ironically, it was the Fourth Crusade that enabled the Ottoman Turks to then successfully conquer Constantinople two centuries later.

    Eastern and Central Europe would be a playground for the Turks for the next 500 years. :siilaanyolaugh:

    The dream of Nur al Din, the Turk atabeg of Aleppo seeing his Crusader and Byzantine enemies vanquished would have made him smile in his grave. :gaasdrink:
