Not sure if anyone watches this page directly, but I suppose it doesn't hurt to ask...

Might it be possible to reformat this template in the standard campaignbox format? It would make it much easier to include in conjunction with {{Infobox Military Conflict}}. Kirill Lokshin 02:40, 9 June 2006 (UTC)

But it's not a single conflict with a bunch of campaigns or battles, like campaignboxes usually contain. Although I suppose we could make a box to make it look like one...
We have a lot of them now that list a series of wars (e.g. {{Campaignbox Punic Wars}}, {{Campaignbox Italian Wars}}, {{Campaignbox Macedonian Wars}}), so it wouldn't be that unusual. Kirill Lokshin 02:45, 9 June 2006 (UTC)
Oh, yeah, I guess so. So it should be pretty simple to change this one? Adam Bishop 05:52, 9 June 2006 (UTC)
Very much so; it just needs to be changed to use {{Campaign}} instead of the regular table markup (and probably moved to {{Campaignbox Crusades}} for consistency?). I just wanted to make sure that there wouldn't be an angry mob on my hands afterwards. Kirill Lokshin 10:04, 9 June 2006 (UTC)
Ok, I converted it, but it's hidden at the moment...is there any way to include an image, or is that just not a possible field in a campaignbox? Adam Bishop 03:32, 15 June 2006 (UTC)
Not really possible (and it would probably cause alignment problems in cases where the box did actually follow a full infobox, if we added it). On the other hand, though, if {{Infobox Military Conflict}} is added at the top of the articles using this, an image can be included there. Kirill Lokshin 03:13, 16 June 2006 (UTC)
Well, I've changed it to a campaignbox format; let's see what kind of comments we get.
One point of interest: I used short-form links here (e.g. [[First Crusade|First]]), since that's the general convention in most campaignboxes. I don't know if this is too confusing here, though. Kirill Lokshin 02:38, 6 July 2006 (UTC)

missing Crusade: Otranto (1480)[edit]

"In 1480, without cause or warning , the Turkish fleet invaded and landed nearby and took the city and its fort. The Pope called for a crusade,..." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Otranto —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Fvdham (talkcontribs) 05:59, 27 March 2007 (UTC).

The question you have to ask is "is this campaign widely known as $SOMEWTHING Crusade in historiography", not "has the term crusade ever been used in connection with it, ever, by anyone". --dab (𒁳) 10:12, 16 December 2016 (UTC)

Henry's Crusade[edit]

Launched in response to Frederick I's failure in the Third. I have created the article and have used a very good referece, so please check it out. I have also added it in.Tourskin 04:16, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

Linked as Crusade of 1197. Blue Danube (talk) 05:50, 9 January 2016 (UTC)


Surely the Reconquista deserves a mention in the box? It's not a Crusade as such, but it was a war of Religion, so I think it qualifies. (talk) 21:35, 29 May 2009 (UTC)

No, it doesn't. As you yourself say, it's not a crusade. Case closed. Str1977 (talk) 17:13, 27 October 2009 (UTC)
It's a question of what this navbox is supposed to achieve. I suggest it should help in navigating between the articles directly connected to the topic of "crusades". Template creep is a real problem, in this case, the natural tendency will be to list each and every article loosely connected to military campaigns by Catholic states, to the point of including "Spanish Armada".
The Reconquista is a major topic in its own right, which is of course intimately connected to the Crusades. It probably still isn't helpful to expand the scope of this infobox to include the Reconquista. --dab (𒁳) 10:11, 16 December 2016 (UTC)

Both Shepherds' crusades added[edit]

These were missing so I added them chronologically. Blue Danube (talk) 05:50, 9 January 2016 (UTC)
