And they were met by Charles, king of Apulia and Sicily, near Naples, who, relying on the aid of pope Clement, defeated them. Afterwards, Charles obtained the sovereignty over all Romagna and Tuscany, and appointed Guy de Montfort his viceroy. This Guy, by the advice of count Aldebrand, surnamed Scarlet, whose daughter he had married, inflicted many injuries on the Romans and Tuscans.
