The Crusades, began in 1096 and ended in 1291, is a series in the Roman Catholic Pope granted under the famous religious military action, by the western European feudal lords and knights of the eastern Mediterranean countries launched the war. When Jerusalem that belonging to the Roman Catholic fell into the hands of Islam, the Roman Catholic church in order to recapture lost ground started multiple crusades' actions. Every time at the beginning of the crusaders, the soldiers had been preached, had oaths and been awarded crosses at each ceremony, then they had been appointed the members of the church.

Colonization in lands such as the North Atlantic by Scandinavia, the founding of Newfoundland by Leif Ericcson, and the expansion into Baltic lands led to the addition of the Roman Catholic Church territory. Reconquests of lands from the Muslims in the Mediterranean also led to much larger expansions into the lands of Italy and Spain. One of the most important islands was Sicily, which was conquered by the Guiscard brothers and was gradually displaced of Islam with the new introduction to Roman Catholic Christianity. Another conquest was the reconquista of Spain, who was originally an independent city state but then eventually became part of the whole Western Europe Empire after the encouragement from the Roman Catholic clergy to displace Muslims in these territories. One of the most important conquests that gained land for the empire were the crusades that mounted in an effort to recapture Palestine and Jerusalem, who was then Muslim territory.

During this crusade, knights and peasants from many areas of Western Europe went on this pilgrimage, first stopping at Constantinople and then continuing on to Jerusalem. In the group of crusaders, the peasants greatly out numbered the military knights. Many crusaders did not make it the long journey, and the lasting crusaders were mostly the knights, as they were better trained and prepared for such combat. Once the Knights reached Jerusalem, they took control by ransacking every building and torturing and killing almost all of the 60,000 unarmed civilians living in Jerusalem.
