With the arrival in Acre of Roger of San Severino, the Vicar of Charles of Anjou (Charles I of Sicily), the Kingdom of Jerusalem is split.

Roger is claiming control over the government on behalf of his master, who is in turn backed by the pope in Rome.

Most of the vassals in Jerusalem acquiesce to the demands, but not all. John of Tyre and Isabella of Beirut are the most prominent of the dissidents who resist.
