With a POD starting on April 13th 1204, have the armies of the Byzantin Empire (or some other Orthodox nations) crusading, successfully seizing and loot Rome an the Vatican.
How would that come to be?
How long after the earliest POD?

The Byzantines never attained the concept of holy war like the Catholics did. This requires a shift in thinking in the clergy and political atmosphere for the Eastern Romans to take up sacrapeding.

Could be a Russia-wank. Have them avoid Mongol conquest, unite, and take a disliking to the Papacy.
