Λ.ο. 1177.] KINO HENRY'S DECISIONS. •ο υ earls, and barons, it was asserted on the part of Alphonso, that whilst he was still a minor and an orphan, Sain ho Kin;; of Navarre had taken from him, unjustly and by violence, the castles and lands of Logtoium, Navarret, Anthlena, Aptol. and Agosen, with their appurtenances, which had belonged to Alplionso's father before he died, and which Alphonso himself had since for some years possessed ; for which reason they claimed restitution for their sovereign. The ambassadors of Sancho, on the other hand, did not deny these facts, but asserted that Alphonso had taken by force from Sancho the castles of Legni, Portel, and that held by Goditi; and, as the opposite party did not contradict, they with equal urgency claimed restitution for their master. They also acknowledged publicly that a truce had been made; for seven years, on oath, between the parties. When the king of England had counselled with his bishops, earls, and barons on the subject of this quarrel, as it appeared that neither party denied the acts of violence on either side, and there appeared to be no reason why mutual restitution should not be made, the king decided that both parties should give tip what they had taken, that the truce should be observed up to its full period, and that, for the sake of peace, Alphonso should pay to Sancho every year for tei, years three thousand marabotins,* and on these terms there should be final peace and friendship between the two. In these days, ambassadors from Manuel emperor of Constantinople, from the Roman emperor Frederic, from William archbishop of Treves, from Henry duke of Saxonv, and Philip count of Flanders, each engaged on his own separate business, met together in the king's court at Westminster, as if by agreement, on the 12th of November. We mention this fact, in proof of the estimation in which all the world held the wisdom and magnificence of the king, as was evinced by all of them applying to him for advice and settlement of their disputes.
