In 1182, there was the “Massacre of the Latins” (Roman Catholics) in Constantinople in the former Byzantine Empire.

Much of Constantinople was vandalized and looted by the Venetian and West European Crusaders in 1204 during the Fourth Crusade, known as the “Siege of Constantinople”.

Norway and Jerusalem captured the cities of Syria by the coast with the assistance of the fleet of 200 Venetian ships.
