m Thefe knights were gracioufly received by the king and his lords j and many queftions were afked concerning the news of the countries they came from : they told all they knew ; hotr the war had been carried on in Spain and Navarre, and how thofe two kings had concluded a peace, relating exa&ly the articles of the treaties, and alfo that the king of Navarre had married his eldeft fon to a daughter of king Henry. The duke of Lancafter and the earl of Cam-bridge were very penfite on heating this intelli-gence, for they had confidercd thcmfelves as heirs to all Spain in right of their wives : they inquired at what time king Henry had died, and if the Spa-niards had crowned his fon king. # ' Sir Thomas Trivet and fir William Helmen an-fwered f My dear lords, when king Henry the baftanTdied, we were not at the coronation of his fon s for at that time we had retreated into Na-varre i but we have a herald who was prefent, and you may, if you pleafe, learn from him every par-ticular concerning it.* The herald was called in, and the duke defired he would relate* how every thing paiTed. He an-fwered ; c My lords, I will comply with your re-qucftf and tell you all. While thefe knights were at Pampeluna, waiting the conclufion • of the trea-ties, I remained by their permiflron with the king of Navarre, and was much refpefted by him and by his people. I left Pampeluna, and accompanied him to St. Domingo, where, on his approach, king Henry came out to meet him with a numerous train, as a proof of his aflfc&ion.
