Hey everyone!

I was wondering if anyone out there could help me find some more information on this illustration. It depicts the conquest of Constantinople in 1204, during the Fourth Crusade. In Battles of the Medieval World it's listed as a 15th century manuscript illustration. The only place I could find this illustration online was on Wikipedia. Any help is appreciated!

This is all proper what you say - it is a miniature drawn in 15c. but depicting the conquest of Constantinople by the crusaders in 1204.

Stored in the French national library, Paris. http://www.bnf.fr/fr/acc/x.accueil.html
Sorry, could not find the name of the manuscript.
