ANNALS OF KOGEK BE HOVEDEN. A.D. 1182, the eldest daughter of Matthew, earl of Boulogne ; also the countess of Flanders, daughter of Balph de Perorine, and wife of Philip, earl of Flanders. In the same year, Henry, king of England, the father, crossed over from England to Normandy, in consequence of the annoyances and vexations which his son king Henry was causing him. For, having gone with his wife to Philip, king of France, he was devising all the evils he possibly could to the detriment of the king, his father, contrary to good faith and the oaths of fealty which he had often taken to him ; demanding of him, in conformity with the advice of Philip, king of France, his wife's brother, the whole of Normandy, or else some other part of his territories, in which he and his wife might take up their abode, and from which he might pay his knights and servants for their services. However, the Divine grace inspiring him so to do, he returned to his father, and swore that for the future he would not oppose his wishes or designs, or demand anything more of him than a hundred pounds of money Anjouin per day for his expenses, and ten pounds per day of the same money for his wife's expenses ; in addition to which the king, the father, agreed with the king, his son, that in the same year he would give him the services of a hundred of his knights. After this, the king, the father, held a conference, at which were present the king of France and the earl of Flanders ; on which occasion an arrangement was made between them to the following effect ; that the lands of which the earl of Flanders demanded restitution to be made to himself, should be restored to the knight who had lost them, and that the earl of Flanders should make good for the king of France the injuries that he and his people had done in France, with reference to the destruction byfire, and the booty that had been carried off. In addition to this, the said earl quitted claim to the king of France of the services of the count of Claremont, and delivered up to the king of France the city of Amiens with its appurtenances, and all the lands extending thence to the waters of the Lys after his own decease, together with his niece, the daughter of the earl of Hainault ; and the said earl made confession that lawfully Peronne with its appurtenances was only in pledge to himself, and agreed that the king of France should have possession thereof for sixty thousand pounds of silver. At the same conference, the said earl of Flanders delivered into the possession of the king of England, the father, the agreement entered into
