don, and by command of the king was honourably placed in the church. Also the crown of that ancient famous king of the Britons, Arthur, was given up, with many other jewels. And so, by the providence of God, the glory of the Welch, who were thus against their will subjected to the laws of the English, was transferred to the English. About the time of the feast of Saint Andrew the Apostle, Richard Warren, abbot o f Westminster, and treasurer of the lord the king, died, after whose death William of Wenlock was unanimously elected, by way of compromise, on the vigil of the Circumcision.

Concerning the nativity of Edward, the son of the king, and concerning the appearance of Frederic. A.D . 1284. On the day of Saint Mark the Evangelist, a son was born to the king at Caernarvon, in the district of Snowdon, whose name was Edward, at whose birth many rejoiced, and especially the citizens of London. About the same time, Alfonso, the king's eldest son, coming to Westminster, offered up a certain ornament of gold, which had formerly belonged to Llewellyn, prince of Wales, with other jewels also, which were all applied to adorn the tomb of the blessed king Edward. This Alfonso died this year, being about twelve years of age, dying on the nineteenth of August, on the day of Saint Magnus the king, and bis body was honourably buried in the church of Westminster, near the tomb of Saint Edward, where it is placed between his brothers and sisters, who were buried before him in the same place. The same year, Frederic, who had formerly been emperor of the Romans, appeared in Germany, though, according to the opinion of many people, he was only an impostor, but some believe him to have been the real prince ; for, according to some people, he was said to have died thirty-two years before.
