The Third Crusade (High Imperial: Tertia Expeditio Sacra) was a small conflict that was initially between the Kingdom of Norland and the Holy Orenian Empire, though it quickly grew to be a large scale conflict involving most of the major powers of the world, including the then newly formed Kingdom of Renatus, the remnants of the Sixth Empire under the banner of the Apostolic Kingdom of Marna, and after their capitulation in the year 1640, the Kingdom of Santegia, versus the Kingdom of Norland.
