King Philip II Augustus of France dies. Philip had been one of the leaders of the Third Crusade and leaves an inheritance of 50,000 marks to the Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem. Under his leadership, Paris became one of the greatest cities of Europe, especially when it comes to scholarship and learning.

Philip II Augustus is succeeded by his son, Louis VIII, who will reap the benefits of the Albigensian Crusade against the Cathars in southern France. He will gain control over a much larger area and thereby also access to greater tax funds with which to defend his interests in Europe.
