404 ANNALS OF ROGER DE HOTEDEN. A. D . 1177. to give them up, the king of England would not allow his son Richard to marry the before-named Alice. Nevertheless, at the said interview, by the advice of the cardinal and the chief men of both kingdoms, friendship and a final reconciliation were made between the king of France and the king of England upon the following terms :— "Know all men, both present as well as to come, that I Louis, by the grace of God king of the Franks, and I Henry, by the like grace king of England, wish it to be understood by all men, both present and to come, that we, by the inspiration of God, have promised and made oath that we will go together, in the service of Christianity, and assuming the cross will depart for Jerusalem, in manner contained in the instrument made between us as to assuming the cross. We do also will that all should know that we now are and henceforth wish to be friends, and that each of us will, to the best of his power, defend life and limb for the other, and his wordly honors against all men. And if any person shall presume to do injury to either of us, I Henry, to the best of my power, will aid Louis, king of France, my liege lord, against all men ; and I Louis will, to the best of my power, aid Henry, king of England, as my vassal and liegeman, against all men ; saving always that faith which we owe to our liegemen so long as they shall preserve their fealty to ourselves. And from henceforth neither of us will harbour anyenemy of the other in his dominions, from the time that delivery of him shall have been demanded. And to the end that henceforth all matter of discord between us may be removed, we do mutually agree that as to the lands and possessions and other things which each of us now possesses, the one shall from this time forward make no demand thereof against the other, (except Auvergne, as to which the dispute arose between us, and except the foe of Chateau Raoul, and except some small fees and allotments of lands belonging to us in Berry,) in ease our vassals should take any portion thereof the one from the other or in opposition to either of us. And if, as to the places which are above excepted, we shall not be able of ourselves to come to an agreement, then I Louis, king of the Franks, have chosen three bishops, those of Claremont, Nivernois and Treguier, and three barons, count Theobald, count Robert, and Peter de Courteney,9 my .brethren, and I Henry, king of England, have chosen three bishops, William,bishop of Le Mans, : ' Incorrectly written in the text '• de Turtciiei."
