They found there a great many lords and knights newly arrived from France ; fuch as fir Lewis of PoiQiers, count de Valence, the count d'Auxerre, the count de Porcien, the count de Joigny, the count de Boulogne, and matiy others, whom king Philip had fent to their affiftapce : fome had come as volunteers, to fee the lord Charles, and to ferve under him.

Lord Charles would grant them no other conditions, than that they ihould furrender themfelves for him to do with them as he thought proper.
