Emeric intervened in the internal struggles of the neighbouring countries and assisted the missionary work of the papal legates among the Bogumils of Bosnia. During his reign, the Doge of Venice, Enrico Dandolo, managed to persuade the leaders of the Fourth Crusade to occupy and take Zára from Hungary.
