In 1208 Pope Innocent III called for a Crusade against a country of fellow- Christians. The new enemy was Raymond VI, Count of Toulouse, one of the greatest princes in Western Christendom, premier baron of all the territories in southern France. So began the Albigensian Crusade, which was to culminate in 1244 with the massacre of Cathars at the mountain fortress of Montsegur.
