CHAP. CCXV. THE KINGS OF FRANCE AND OF CYPRUS UNDER* TAKE AND SWEAR TO PERFORM A CROISADE AGAINST THE INFIDELS.—THE KINO OF CYPRUS MAKES EARNEST SOLICITATIONS FOR ASSIST-ANCE TO MANY KINGS AND PRINCES IN DIVERS PLACES OF CHRISTENDOM* ^BOUT Candlemas # 1362, the king of Cyprus came to Avignon : at which event the whole court was much rejoiced, and many cardinals went out to meet him, and to conduit him to the palace of pope Urban, who received him very gracioufiy, as did the king of France, who was prefent. When they had remained together fome time, and had had wine and fpices ferved to them, the two kings took leave of the pope, and each went to his hôtel. During this time, there was a public combat be-fore the king of France, at Villeneuve, from pledges given and received, between two valiant and noble knights, whofe names were fir Aymon de Pom-miers and fir Foulcjues d'Archiac. When they had • Candlemas. Denys Sauvage fays, m a note on the margin, that Froiflaxt forgets in this place to begin the year the 1 ft of January. * By an èdi$ given by Charles IX. at RouffiUon-Çhâtea» in Dauphiné 1564, he fixed the beginning of the year 1565 at the firft of January ; whereas formerly the year com-menced at Eafter. It appears to me that its commence-ment ought to be the 21ft December* or rather the lift of March.9 EJfaif Bifloriqms fur F arts tome iii. p. $28. H 4 fought «°3'
