But the Germans did not profit by this success, for news ar-rived from Europe, that the great support of the crusade, Henry VI., was dead. The Archbishop of Mayence, and all those princes who had an interest in the election of a German sovereign, deserted the Holy Land.—Mills' Histo-ry of the Crusades, p. 172. NOTE UTJU.—PAGE 277. " Blanche of Castile.'"—This queen, so justly celebrated for her talents in the administration of government, as well as her lofty character and the excellent education her son received under her direction, was granddaughter of Eleonor of Guyenne. She was born at Burgos, in Spain, in 1185, and was the daughter of Alphonso IX., King of Castile, and of Eleonor, daughter of Henry II. of England. —Queens of England, p. 164. NOTE VVV.—PAGE 284. " Suabia."—In 1030, Frederic of Staufen, Lord of Ho-henstaufen, displayed so much courage in battle, that the Emperor, Henry IV., bestowed upon him the Duchy of Suabia, and his daughter Agnes in marriage. Thus was laid the foundation of the future greatness of a house, whose elevation and fall are among the most important epochs in the history of the German empire. The inex-tinguishable hatred of the Guelphs, against the house of Hohenstaufen (Ghibelines) resulted in a contest which, in-volved German}' and Italy in accumulated sufferings for more than three hundred years.—See Encyclopedia.
