Roger II of Sicily is excommunicated by the Second Lateran Council for holding a "schismatic attitude".

Convened by Pope Innocent II, council's excommunication of Roger II is due to his refusal to grant Innocent an independent Principality of Capua to serve as a buffer between the Papal States and Roger's Normal territory.

In the summer, Pope Innocent II will invade the Kingdom of Sicily with his own army but he is defeated and captured. In July, Innocent will have to rescind the excommunication and proclaim Roger II as rex Siciliae ducatus Apuliae et principatus Capuae.
