The new enemy: Raymond VI, Count of Toulouse, prince of all the territories in southern France where the langue doc was spoken. Thus began the Albigensian Crusade, which culminated in 1244 at the mountain fortress of Montségur with the massacre of the Cathars, or pure ones, a faith more ancient than Roman Catholicism.
