Pope Martin V Offers Indulgences to Contributors for Crusade Against Ottoman Turks

Pope Martin V
Source: Wikipedia

Pope Martin V offers an indulgence to anyone who contributes to a crusade against the Ottoman Turks. He wants to provide support to Byzantine emperor Manuel II Palaeologus who is being hard-pressed by the Turks.

Sigismund, King of the Romans, will try to lead a Crusade against the Turks but won't accomplish much because he has his hands full with the Hussite Wars at home.
