A.D. 1175. TREATY BETWEEN XING EODEEIC AND KING HENRY. 403 the octave of Saint Michael, in the year of grace one thousand one hundred and seventy-five, between our lord the king of England, Henry, son of the empress Matilda, and Eoderic, king of Connaught, by the Catholic archbishop of Tuam, Cantordis, abbat of Saint Brandan, and master Laurence, chancellor of the king of Connaught ; that is to say— " The Tri rig of England grants to the above-named Boderic, bis liegeman, the kingdom of Connaught, so long as he shall faithfully serve him, so as to be king thereof under him and ready to do him service as his Hegeman, that he shall hold his lands as weU and as peaceably as he held the same before our lord the king of England entered Ireland, always paying him tribute, and that he shall hold aH the rest of that land and the inhabitants of that land in subjection to himself, and shall exercise justice over them in such way that they shall pay M l tribute to the king of England, and by his hand preserve their rights. And those who now hold lands, are to hold the same in peace so long as they shall observe their fealty to the king of England, and fuBy and faithfully render tribute and his other rights which they owe to him by the hand of the king of Connaught, saving in all things the rights and honor of our lord the king of England and of himself. " And if any of them shaH become rebels against the king of England and himself, and shaB be unwilling by his hand to render tribute and his other rights unto the king of England, and shall withdraw from their fealty to the king ; he shaB take judicial cognizanee of them, and remove them therefrom. And if of himself he shall not be able to carry out his sentence upon them, the constable of the king of England and his household in that land shaH aid him in so doing, when they shall have been called upon by him, and shall themselves see that it is necessary so to do. And by reason of this treaty, the aforesaid king of Connaught shall render tribute each year to our lord the king, that is to say, for every ten animals one skin, such as may be approved by dealers, both from the whole of his own lands, as also from those of others. " Except that, as to those lands which our lord the king has retained as of his own demesne and as of the demesne of his barons, he shaH not make entry thereupon, that is to say, Dub lin with its appurtenances, and Meath with aU its appurte nances, as wholly and fully as ever the Marchât Vamaileth DD2
