Pope Eugene III flees Rome and takes refuge in the castle of Ptolemy II in Tusculum. Ever since he was first elected pope, Eugene III has been in conflict with the people of Rome.

Arnold of Brescia is the primary instigator of the conflict because he is such a strong opponent of the temporal powers the come with the papacy and wants to restore the old Roman constitution.
