ι CHAP. LXVIL THE EAfel/o* MONTFORT DOES HOMAGE TO THJ KING OP ENGLAND, FOR TFfE DUKEDOM OF BRITTANV*. \\TH Y ihould I make a long ftory of it? The earl of Montfort continued his conquefts, gained the whole country, and was every where addrefled as duke of Brittany. He advanced to a fea-port town, called Rofcoff, when he difmifTed his troops, and fent them to garrifon and preferve for him the different towns he had won. He then embarked, and landed in Cornwall, at a port called Cepfee, where, upon his inquiries after the king of England, he was informed that he was at Windfor. He fer off for that place, and was received at Windfor, by the king, queen, and all the barons at that rime there, with great joy. He explained to the king, the lord Robert d'Artois, and to all the council, the manner of his * Froiffart feems to miftake this homage for the one the earl of Montfort paid to the king of England as earl of Richmond, which had fallen to the king on the death of earl John. But I cannot account for this, as Froilfart before fays, king Edward created Robert d*Artois earl of Richmond. Montfort positively denied having, paid any homage, when he attended the king of France, at Paris, in obedience to his fummone. The procuration to treat with the duke of Brittany, and the powers to receive his homage for the lands appertaining to the earldom of Richmond, are given to the archbifhop of Canterbury, and fir Walter Scroop, both dated the }3th March 1331.—R YMER.
