In the same year, pope Clement sent the pall to Hubert Fitz-Walter, the archbishop elect of Canterbury. In the same year, Philip, king of France, married Botilda,8 daughter of "Waldemar, the former king of Denmark, and sister of Canute, the then reigning king of Denmark, at Amiens, on a Saturday, in the month of September; and on the following day had her crowned and consecrated queen of France before the envoys of the king of Denmark who had escorted her to him, with the intention that the said king of Denmark might be induced to invade England with a naval armament.

Some of the bishops, also, took from the clergy the fourth part of their revenues, while others took a tenth, for the ransom of the said king.
