The Barbary Crusade
One of the last crusades
Amid the Hundred Years’ War, the merchant republic of Genoa appealed to France for help organizing and participating in a brand new crusade. The new crusade would take place in 1390 and would be one of the last major religious crusades organized by Christians. Today, the crusade is known as the Barbary Crusade, and it is a little-remembered footnote in the history of Medieval Europe.
