The Mamluks of Egypt under the command of Sultan Baibars take the city of Antioch and kill most of its inhabitants, despite the fact that Baibars had promised Prince Bohemond VI that he would spare the people in exchange for the city's surrender.

The physical destruction of the city is so extensive that it will never again play an important strategic or commercial role in the region, eventually being overtaken by the port city of Alexandretta (Iskenderun).
