    I could not seem to find the wording of this already available...

    I want to say under the pretence of...

    as in, 'under the guise of'

    My sentence is this:

    France, under the pretence of a religious crusade, invaded Occitania in what became known as the Albigeoise Crusade.



    On dirait... sous le pretexte de + infinitive?

    What language are you trying to get to? It is usually called " the Albigensian crusade".

    Sorry, I didn't make that clear.
    I want to translate the phrase into French for an essay. Albigeoise is its French name :)

    Yes, I see two options here :
    La France, sous le prétexte d'une croisade...
    La France, prétextant une croisade...
