If the Crusade was going to help the Byzantines to drive away their enemies, as well as attack the Holy land, why did it turn on the Byzantine Empire?

    aea, can you tell us the situation that led to such a question? Why do you need such a explanation? How did you try to look for such a thing?

  • Sometimes, I like to listen to what other people have to say. the situation is that if the 4th crusade hadn't attacked the Empire, I might be living in Greece. That is why. Also, the crusaders carried off priceless religious objects, which makes me very mad.

    This is a "bad" question for the site because it doesn't look like you've done any research. Members of the site prefer to deal with questioners who have PART of the question under their "control" and need help filling some gaps.

    Personally, I disagree with you @Carlo_R. . There needn't be a reason based on actual problems for every question. See meta.history.stackexchange.com/a/237/961
