The Emperor John III Ducas Vatatzes (1222-54) consolidated his imperium in Asia Minor by 1224. He appeared poised to launch a massive assault upon Latin-occupied Constantinople and to restore the pre-1204 Byzantine Empire. Yet John III suddenly abandoned this compelling strategy. Dr. Langdon compiles evidence suggesting that John III was absorbed in waging a crusade against the Turks along the Eastern frontier. Using Byzantine, Metabyzantine, Latin and Arabic sources the author is able to postulate the date for this conflict, and also that John III led the crusade personally.
