7 years after the 5th crusade, and the Roman Empire failed to regain power over the holy city of Jerusalem..
brought about by Frederick II, the Holy Roman Emperor who sought to assuage his guilt at his lack of leadership of the Fifth Crusade by launching the Sixth Crusade to recover Jerusalem
This crusade was very different compared to the other crusades.. there was little to none fighting. in 1231 an army was sent to occupy the countries of Beirut and Tyre
Frederick was able to temporarily establish direct control in Cyprus. However, the imperial control on the island would be short-lived and yet it caused Frederick the loss of the support of the Ibelin faction.
At the same time, Muslims retained control of the Temple Mount and other holy sites in the city. The compromise effectively made it possible for Frederick to take control of Jerusalem and achieve the aims of the Sixth Crusade without any fighting at all.
