Holy Roman Emperor Frederick II is found guilty of sacrilege at the First Council of Lyons and deposed. Frederick II has been besieging Rome in order to eliminate the temporal power of Pope Innocent IV over southern Italy.

The deposition of Frederick II as Holy Roman Emperor is signed by 150 of the attending bishops. Not much comes of it, however, because Pope Innocent IV simply doesn't have the power to enforce it.
