bishop of Beauvais, Reginald, bishop of Chartres, Guido, bishop of Orleans, and Eotrod, bishop of Chalons ; and against Robert, count de Drues, Louis, count de Blois, Theobald, count de Champagne, and Stephen, count de Nevers ; also, against the barons, Simon de Castelane de l'lsle, Peter de Mainil, and Walter, chamberlain of the king of Prance, who had made oath before the archbishop of Rheims, that the said Botilda, and the daughter of the earl of Hainault, who had been the wife of the said king of France, were so closely related in consanguinity, that the said king of France ought on no account to, nor indeed could, take the said Botilda to wife. But, although the said king of the Danes was ready to prove that they had borne false testimony against her, and that the said divorce was null and void, and ought not to hold good, still, on account of his good understanding with the king of France, pope Celestinus declined40 to listen to him relative thereto. In the year of grace 1196, being the seventh year of the reign of Richard, king of England, the said king was at Poitou, on the day of the Nativity of our Lord, which fell on the second day of the week ; and on the same day, Hubert, archbishop of Canterbury, justiciary of all England, and legate of the Apostolic See, was at York, being sent, on the king's behalf, to hold a conference with William, king of the Scots, on the subject of contracting a marriage between Otho, son of Henry, duke of Saxony, and nephew of Richard, king of England, and his daughter Margaret. For there had been an agreement made between Richard, king of England, and William, king of Scotland, that the said king of Scotland should give to the before-named Otho his daughter Margaret in marriage, with the whole of Lothian ; and that the king of England should give to Otho, and the daughter of the king of Scotland, and their heirs, the whole of Northumberland, and the county of Carlisle ; and that the king of England should have in his charge the whole of Lothian, with its castles ; and the king of Scotland should have in his charge the whole of Northumberland, and the county of Carlisle, with its castles. But, because the queen of Scots was at that time in a state of pregnancy, the king of Scotland was unwilling to abide by the said agreement, hoping that the Lord would give him a son. 4 0 Roger of Wendover, however, says that the pope pronounced the divorce to be null and void, and gives a copy of this Apostolic letter to that effect.
