The Fifth Italian Campaign

The Fifth Italian Campaign

(p.379) Chapter Fourteen The Fifth Italian Campaign
Frederick Barbarossa

Yale University Press

This chapter details events surrounding Frederick's fifth Italian campaign. Frederick is believed to have undertaken the campaign at the instigation of Margrave William of Montferrat and Pavia. Possibly, as Archbishop Romuald of Salerno thought, the emperor hoped to avenge the injuries that the Lombards had caused him. The discussions cover the failed siege of Alessandria; the aborted peace of Montebello; Henry the Lion's alleged denial of his cousin the emperor's request for the military assistance; Frederick's defeat at Legnano on 29 May 1176; the consuls of Cremona's issuance of a revised mediation award in an attempt to resolve the conflict; the preliminary peace of Anagni; the peace of Venice; Frederick's public humiliation in Venice; the crowning of Frederick as king of Burgundy in Arles on 30 July 1178; the temporary return of the papacy to Rome; and the Peace of Constance of 25 June 1183.
