By place[edit]

Byzantine Empire[edit]


  • Spring – Emperor Henry II divides his army into three columns and descends through Rome onto Capua[why?]. The bulk of the expeditionary force (20,000 men) led by Henry, makes its way down the Adriatic coast.
  • Pilgrim, archbishop of Cologne, marches with his army down the Tyrrhenian coast to lay siege to Capua. The citizens open the gates and surrender the city to the imperial army.[1]
  • Pilgrim besieges the city of Salerno for forty days. Prince Guaimar III offers to give hostages – Pilgrim accepts the prince's son and co-prince Guaimar IV, and lifts the siege.[2]
  • Summer – Outbreak of the plague among the German troops forces Henry II to abandon his campaign in Italy. He reimposes his suzerainty on the Lombard principalities.
  • King Olof Skötkonung dies and is succeeded by his son Anund Jakob as ruler of Sweden. He becomes the second Christian king of the Swedish realm.



  • The Chinese military has one million registered soldiers during the Song Dynasty, an increase since the turn of the 11th century (approximate date).
