Because they had no central governing body, there was a lot of confusion, lack of unity, and sacking and looting of underserving cities along the way on their journey.

Nevertheless, the First Crusade was a success and established four Crusader Kingdoms in the territory (165). The Second Crusade was more organized, but resulted in the fall of the remaining Christian kingdoms in the area to Muslim belligerents (187).…

    The influential and dominant Roman Empire fell due to overexpansion which led to the Empire being split and created vulnerability among the Empire.

Once Rome had lost their dominant ruler, they became vulnerable and weak to outside attacks, this lead to a decline in trade and overall income which made it impossible for the Empire to survive.

    Under Spanish rule, Native American religion was sought out and destroyed in attempts at conversion. With the English, the Natives simply stayed out of English colonies, due to many areas of religious intolerance, like Maryland and Massachusetts Bay.
