To be brief, he was a psychopath with a license (I believe from the Pope of the time) to kill, maim, kidnap and enslave. Oh, and he also wanted gold, lots of it. Some peoples still "remember" him today. Word of mouth, through the generations. Basically, he was a complete scumbag. And he had well-armed troops.
