2Ù§ aunt to the king'of Navarre, and queen Blanche, his fifter, laboured fo earnestly for peace that it was con-cluded between the kings of France and Navarre, affifted much by the advice and prudence of the cap-tai de Buch, who took great pains in the bufinefs. He alfo obtained his liberty by it. The king of France fhowed him great marks of efteem, and, as a proof of it, gave him the handfome caftle of Nemours, with all its rights, appurtenances and jurifdi&ions, which were worth three thoufand francs of revenue. The captai became, by this means, liege man to the king of France. The king was well pleafed at re-ceiving him a homager ; for he loved much the fervice of a knight fuch as the captai ; but he was not fo long, for, when he was returned into the principality to the prince, who had been informed of what had pafled, he was much blamed, and told that he could not acquit himfelf loyally in his fer-vice to two lords : that he was over covetous, when he accepted of lands in France, where he was neither honored nor beloved. When he found himfelf in this fituation, and fo treated and taunted by the prince of Wales, his own natural lord, he was ^uite afhamed of himfelf, and made excufes, faying ' that he was not by any means too much connected with the king of France, and that he could very eafily undo all that had been done.* He fent, therefore, by his own fquire, his homage back to the king of France, renounced all that had been given him, and remained attached to . the prince.
