This chapter discusses events that occurred after July 1183, when Frederick swore to adhere to the Peace of Constance. It covers Frederick's efforts to settle the remaining differences between the Church and Empire; his alliance with Milan; the further deterioration of Frederick's already badly strained relations with the papacy following the death of Lucius III on 25 November 1185; Frederick's devastation of the contado of Cremona in the spring of 1186 and siege of the recently built Cremonese fortification of Castel Manfredi; conflict between Frederick and Urban III; his conflict with Archbishop Philip of Cologne; and preparations for the Third Crusade.
