The Fall of Constantinople
#12
The last emperor of the Byzantine Empire was a Catholic, In order to save Constantinople, he asked the pope to send help, in return, he would impose the union. Sadly, the pope's influence over the Western leaders wasn't great in that time, and he couldn't convince them. Some ships from Venice who were present did help, and Venice itself did think about sending a fleet. Their decision to send one came too late, and it wasn't able to partake in the battle.

It's kinda our fault, and I guess Mark of Ephesus was right... :(
