Philippe Chinard
Philippe Chinard (1205 - 1266) was a French nobleman, admiral and governor of Manfred of Sicily. After Manfred had captured some territories in Albania, Philip was appointed as Manfred's general governor of those dominions. Initially based in Corfu, Chinard moved his headquarters to Kaninë Castle, Kanina, then the dominant center of the Vlorë region, where he married a relative of Michael II Komnenos Doukas. Upon hearing the news of Manfred's death in the Battle of Benevento, Michael II conspired and managed to kill Philippe Chinard, with the help of Chinard's wife, but he could not capture Manfred's domains.Revue des études byzantines, Volumes 61-62 Author Institut français des études byzantines Publisher Institut français d'études byzantines., 2003 p.232 References

It began with the fall of the Western Roman Empire and transitioned into the Renaissance and the Age of Discovery. The Middle Ages is the middle period of the three traditional divisions of Western history: classical antiquity, the medieval period, and the modern history, modern period. The medieval period is itself subdivided into the Early Middle Ages, Early, High Middle Ages, High, and Late Middle Ages. Population decline, counterurbanisation, the collapse of centralized authority, invasions, and mass migrations of tribes, which had begun in Late Antiquity, continued into the Early Middle Ages. The large-scale movements of the Migration Period, including various Germanic peoples, formed new kingdoms in what remained of the Western Roman Empire. In the 7th century, North Africa ...

The term is often used to refer to the 1200s, the century between 1200 and 1299. The Mongol empire was founded by Genghis Khan, which stretched from Eastern Asia to Eastern Europe. The conquests of Hulagu Khan and other Mongol invasions changed the course of the Muslim world, most notably the siege of Baghdad (1258), the destruction of the House of Wisdom and the weakening of the Mamluk Sultanate (Cairo), Mamluks and Sultanate of Rum, Rums which, according to historians, caused the decline of the Islamic Golden Age. Other Muslim powers such as the Mali Empire and Delhi Sultanate conquered large parts of West Africa and the Indian subcontinent, while Buddhism witnessed a decline through the conquest led by Bakhtiyar Khilji. In the history of European culture, this period is considered part of the High M ...
