Product Description

This beautiful silver coin is part of the “History of the Crusades” series, dedicated to the Northern Crusades. In this edition - the Wendish Crusade. The Wendish Crusade military campaign started in 1147 and was one of the five major Northern Crusades. It was started because peaceful means by the German archbishops of Bremen and Magdeburg to convert the Wends to Christianity failed. The Wends knew about the plans to invade and thus preemptively invaded Germany but failed. Shortly later in 1147 the march of the Crusaders started. It was the Kingdom of German with the Roman Empire against the Slavic Tribes in now northeast Germany and Poland.
