The Wendish Crusade took place in 1147 in the Holy Roman Empire. The Kingdom of Germany led the crusade. The Wends, who were pagan, had invaded Wagria, a district in northern Germany, and the intention of the crusade was to conquer and/or convert them.

There are many differences. First of all, Wrath of the Lich King is an expansion to Burning Crusade so they raised the level cap from 70 to 80. The Burning crusade introduced new instances, and went from 40 man raids to 25 man raids and even smaller 10 man raids if one wished. Wrath of the Lich King offered these options as well, but with recycled material at first, while the Burning Crusade introduced new material, arenas and other ways to obtain epic comparable high grade gear. Wrath of the Lich King basically had all the same features as Burning Crusade, except with a higher level cap. One thing Wrath of the Lich King did include was some vehicle fights, and a major PvP stone to conquer the land called Wintergrasp. Now if you are asking graphics wise, most of it was also recycled. Since they recycled some of the instances, they also recycled the gear images and just changed colors. Therefore you should be able to run it with the same computer specifications.

The Sixth Crusade started in 1228 as an attempt to reconquer Jerusalem. It began only seven years after the failure of the Fifth Crusade. The Holy Roman Emperor, Frederick II, failed to lead the Fifth Crusade. He felt guilty for the crushing defeat the Christian armies suffered against the Egyptian sultan, so he decided to launch a new crusade paid entirely with the Holy Roman Empire funds to recover Jerusalem. The pope, who feared Frederick's growing power, excommunicated the emperor for failing his vow to launch a crusade - this wasn't true, but rather an excuse by the pope to somehow diminish Frederick's growing popularity. It worked as Frederick's support slowly declined due to his excommunication. Nevertheless, without the pope's blessing Frederick recruited an enormous army and sailed to Syria in 1228, arriving at Acre. Frederick sailed to the island of Cyprus to gain a strong base before attacking Egypt. However a dispute with John of Ibelin further reduced Frederick's popularity and forced him to leave earlier than expected. Despite this drawback, Frederick sailed to the Holy Land shortly thereafter. His army was much smaller than the one of the Fifth Crusade and he realized that engaging the powerful Ayyubid Empire in battle would be a tactical mistake. Instead, he marched toward the sultan of Egypt, Al-Kamil, pretending to have a larger army with the hope of gaining Jerusalem through diplomacy. It worked, the sultan who was busy with a rebellion in Syria, ceded Jerusalem, Nazareth and other smaller towns in exchange for a ten-year truce. Frederick entered Jerusalem on 17 March 1229 and accomplished what four previous crusades failed to do: recover the Holy Land. Even though he was excommunicated, he accomplished more than the Second, Third, Fourth and Fifth crusades combined. Many in Europe viewed him as godly inspired and the pope lifted the excommunication shortly. The Sixth Crusade had many historical accomplishments. The most important being that the Papacy's power decline was now evident. Frederick also set the pace for the Seventh, Eighth and Ninth crusades as these were led by single kingdoms rather than an union of several ones, such as all the first crusades. Jerusalem fell to the Turks only fifteen years later when the Turks successfully conquered it in 1244. However, the Christians had by then assimilated much of the Middle Eastern culture greatly influencing medieval life.

There was a general lack of European interest in recapturing the Holy Land, especially at the the cost (taxes, deaths, etc.), and Muslim forces quickly regained control of Sidon, Tyre, and Acre in 1291. The crusades that followed were almost entirely economically motivated, though often claiming religious reasons. There were a series of smaller, lesser known crusades that included: Europeans turning their crusading against northern areas, under the Teutonic Knights: by 1290 they took over the Curonians, Estonians, Latagalians, Livonians, Semigallians. In 1365 there was a small crusade, the Alexandrian Crusade (led by Cypriots), against Alexandria which was the primary port at the time. Peter of Cyprus wanted that primacy for his own country. Although Peter looted the city, he did not conquer Alexandria and quickly left. The Norwich Crusade of 1383 was led by an Englishman, Despenser, to help Ghent who had asked for English assistance. This was following the Western Schism and the Hundred Years' War. Ghent had been under French control and there were supporters of the Antipope Clement VII in Avignon, France. The English were involved because they supported Pope Urban VI of Rome. The English failed. The Barbary Crusade of 1390 saw the Franco-Genoese forces basically bored. They decided to fight Muslim pirates based on the Barbary Coast. As this was in the midst of the Western Schism, priests from both papal courts blessed the crusaders (weird, to say the least). The Berbers approached for truce; they were confused as to the French presence, as they had only had issues with the Genoese, and were told it was for religious reasons- the Muslims had crucified and killed Jesus. Needless to say, the Berbers pointed out that had been done by Jews, and fighting commenced. Eventually both sides realized they were unable to win, and a treaty was agreed upon: 10 year armistice, Mahdia would pay Genoa taxes for 15 years and to the French for their cost of the crusade, in return the crusaders returned home. The last largish crusade was the Crusade of Nicopolis, 1396, and was mainly a result of the Hundred Years' War, which, during on of its intermittent truces, King Richard II (England) married the daughter of King Charles VI (France), Isabella. They appealed to King Sigismund of Hungary (later HRE), who arrived in Paris begging assistance against the tens of thousands of Turks who were a danger to Christianity and its lands. The crusaders first took Vidin, then Oryahovo which surrendered to King Sigismund to save their lives and lands. The French broke the agreement, which obviously angered the Hungarians. The crusaders were unable to take Nicopolis, were in fact essentially slaughtered, or held hostage, a fact Hungarians blamed on the French.

The empires split up into smaller territories.This answer is now correct.

No. There were three armies from France, Germany and a coalition from Northern Europe with the aim of retaking the County of Edessa. There first two were defeated in Anatolia by the Seljuks and barely made it into Jerusalem, the third went by sea and helped recapture Lisbon in the Reconquista in 1147. The remnants of the crusading armies attempted an attack on Damascus in 1148 after regrouping but this failed. So no, the crusading armies did not recapture the County of Edessa or any of the other, smaller provinces lost to Zengi and his Seljuk alliance.

Let's just say that the country got ALOT smaller... stupid Turks...

in order for it not to become spherical, it would have had to be much smaller. if it was much smaller, it would just be some rock floating around like the millions of similar rocks orbiting the Sun.
