After the third warning, therefore, the said Walter came to the before-named archbishop of Eouen, and to his chaplain, and to abbat Eustace ; and whereas, the archbishop and his chaplain, being worn out with sickness and old age, could not attend to the matter, they deputed the abbat of Elaye to act in their behalves ; on which, he with his servant went to the king, and the servant related to the king his vision and the accompanying threats ; but the king, not being able to understand any part thereof, and there being no one to interpret the vision to him, paid no attention whatever to it ; and, shortly after, his son king Henry died, and then his son Geoffrey, earl of Brittany. About the time at which this vision took place many of the Manichœan heretics25 were burned in many places throughout the kingdom of Prance, a thing that the king would in nowise allow in his territories, although there were great numbers of them.

After the Nativity of our Lord, the king ordered the king, his son, to receive homage from Bichard, earl of Poitou, and from Geoffrey, earl of Brittany, his brothers ; on which, in obedience to his father, he received the homage of his brother Geoffrey, and was willing to receive it from his brother Bichard, but Bichard refused to do homage to him ; and afterwards, when Bichard offered to do homage to him, the king, the son, refused to receive it. Bichard, feeling greatly indignant at this, withdrew from the court of the king, his father, and going to Poitou, his own territory, built there some new castles and fortified the old ones. At the request of such of the earls and barons of Poitou as 5 5 " Publicani." Under this name the Albigenses, who were said to be Mauichrcans, are alluded to.
