Emperor Frederick II of Hohenstaufen returns home from the Crusades and regains control of his lands around Naples from Pope Gregory IX and John of Brienne. Frederick lands at Brindisi and sets his Crusaders against the papal army, defeating the forces of Pope Gregory IX.

In Jerusalem, Frederick II leaves his personal representatives to protect his interests; instead, they begin fighting almost immediately.
