on the 2|th day of July, the feaft of Sr. James and St. Chriftopher, John, eldeft fon of the late king Henry, was crowned king of Caftille, in the cathe-dral church of the city of Burgos. All the barons and prelates of Spain, Galicia, Cordova and Seville were prefent, and fwore, on the holy Evangellfts, their homages to him as • king. He created that day two hundred and ten knights, and made feveral magnificent prefents. On the morrow after his co-ronation, he went, attended by great numbers of his nobles, to a convent of nuns, out of Burgos, which is called les Oraches, where he heard mais and dined. After dinner, there was a grand tour-nament s at which the vifeount de Roquebertin, from Arragon, won the prize. When this was over, the king returned to Burgos, where the feafts lafted for fifteen days/ The duke of Lancafter afked if the king of Por-tugal had been invited thither : the herald fajd, c j^e had been invited, but did not come s and I was informed he told the envoy who carried the invitation, that he would never attend the corona-1 tion of the fon of a baftard/ c On my faith/ replied the duke, f he did well .to fend fuch an anfwer, and I thank him for it. Thing? ihaU qot Jong remain a& they now are. It fhall foon be otherwife, for my brother and myfelf will call upon don John for that inheritance of which he now ftiles himfelf king/ Here the con-vention ended, when they called for wine and re-frefhments. We will now leave this matter, and return to what was palling in France. CHAP- 39
