son, a moiety of the revenues of his demesnes in England, and four fitting castles in the same territory ; or, if his son should prefer to remain in Normandy, the king, the father, offered a moiety of the revenues of Normandy, and all the revenues of the lands that were his father's, the earl of Anjou, and three convenient castles in Normandy, and one fitting castle in Anjou, one fitting castle in Maine, and one fitting castle in Tourainc. To his son Richard, also, he offered a moiety of the revenues of Aquitaine, and four fitting castles in the same territory. And to his son Geoffrey he offered all the lands that belonged, by right of inheritance, to the daughter of duke Conan, if he should, with the sanction of our lord the pope, be allowed to marry the above-named lady. The king, the father, also submitted himself entirely to the arbitration of the archbishop of Tarento and the legates of our lord the pope, as to adding to the above as much more of his revenues, and giving the same to his sons, as they should pronounce to be reasonable, reserving to himself the administration of justice and the royal authority. But it did not suit the purpose of the king of France that the king's sons should at present make peace with their father : in addition to which, at the same conference, Robert, earl of Leicester, uttered much opprobrious and abusive language to the king of England, the father, and laid his hand on his sword for the purpose of striking the king; hut he was hindered by the byestanders from so doing, and the conference was immediately brought to a close. On the day after the conference, the knights of the king of France had a skirmish with the knights of the king of England, between Curteles and Gisors ; in which fight Ingelram, castellan of Trie, was made prisoner by earl William de Mandeville, and presented to the king, the father. In the meantime, Robert, earl of Leicester, having raised a large army, crossed over into England, and was received by earl Hugh Bigot in the castle of Fremingham,22 where he supplied him with all necessaries. After this, the said Robert, earl of Leicester, laid siege to Hakeneck, the castle of Ranulph de Broc, and took it; for, at this period, Richard de Lucy, justiciary of England, and Humphrey de Bohun, the king's constable, had marched with a large army into Lothian, the territory of the king of Scotland, for the purpose of ravaging it. 1 3 Framlinghara, in Suffolk.
