After the great schism between the Eastern and Western Churches in 1054, Emperor Constantine IX lands the principal Byzantine army in Italy in 1055. The Papacy will be forcefully brought into alignment with the East. However, Henery IV, Holy Roman Emperor and protector of the Western Church has other intentions for his spiritual leader.
