Frederick II crowns himself king of Jerusalem in the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. Conrad IV of Germany had become titular King of Jerusalem the previous year with his father Frederick II as regent.

Frederick's wife, Yolanda of Jerusalem and titular Queen of Jerusalem, had died the previous year, so Frederick takes the crown for himself.
