Isabella, Queen of Jerusalem and wife of the now-deceased Conrad of Montferrat (killed by assassins the month before), marries Henry II of Champagne, nephew of Richard I Lionheart, King of England.

A quick marriage was urged by the local barons to ensure political and social stability among the Christian Crusaders. Yet it is also suspicious, and many think that Henry of Champagne was involved with Conrad's death.

If he was involved, however, it's unlikely that he acted without the knowledge and permission of his uncle, Richard — one of the most popular suspects for this murder. While returning home after the Crusades, Richard I will be taken prisoner by Conrad's nephew, Meinhard II of Görz.
