Throughout its history, the Kingdom maintained particularly close ties with the Order of Bari, which initiated the Libyan Crusade with the blessing of Pope Gregory XII. The Order served in a similar capacity as the knightly monastic orders did in Crusades for the Middle East. In fact, Tripolitania was governed by the Headmaster of the Order of Bari, Philippe Leonard Seghers, until 1403 - when Sigismund arrived in Tripoli.
