When did the Alexandrian Crusade occur?

in 1354
in 1365
The Alexandrian Crusade was led by Peter I of Cyprus against Alexandria in Egypt. Unlike the more prominent Crusades, it seems to have been motivated largely by economic interests. Peter wanted to end the primacy of Alexandria as a port in the Eastern Mediterranean in the hope that Famagusta would then benefit from the redirected trade. Religious concerns, then, were secondary.
