Peter of Courtenay is crowned Latin Emperor of Constantinople at Rome by Pope Honorius III. He will never reach Constantinople, however, because he will be taken captive along the way and die in prison.

Peter is the youngest son of Louis VI of France and he participated in both the Fourth Crusade with his cousin, King Philip Augustus, and the Albigensian Crusade in southern France.
