A.D. 1176. MARRIAGE CHARTER OF THE PRINCESS JOANNA. 415 loved wife, the county of Mont Saint Angelo, the city of Siponto, and the city of Vesta, with all the rightful tenements and appurtenances thereof. We do also grant for her service, out of the tenements of count Godfrey, Alesina, Peschiza,86 Bicum, Caprile, Barano, and Pilizi, and all other places which the said count is known to possess as of the honor of the said county of Mont Saint Angelo. In like manner, we do also grant for her service, Candelari, Saint Clair,87 Castel Pagano, Bersenza, and Cagnano. We do also grant, that there shall be as of the honor of the said dowry, the monastery of Saint Mary de Pulsano, and the monastery of Saint John de Lama, with all the tenements which those monasteries hold of the honor of the aforesaid county of Saint Angelo—upon condition that the queen, our aforesaid wife, shall always recognize all the rights of our heirs, who by our ordinance shall succeed us in the kingdom, and shall do unto our said heirs, fully and unreservedly, all services for the tenements above-written, according as the tenure in fee thereof shaU require, and shall always observe her fealty to them. Wherefore, in remembrance of the said gift and grant, and for the inviolable establishment thereof, we have commanded this present charter88 to be written by the hand of Alexander, our notary, and, the golden bulla, our seal, being impressed thereon, to be confirmed with our said seal, and graced therewith. Unto which, by our command, the personages of our household and others have subscribed their names in manner following: I WALTER , archbishop of Palermo. I ALFANTJS, archbishop of Capua. I RICHARD, bishop of Syracuse. I BARTHOLOMEW, bishop of Agrigento. I REGINALD, archbishop of Bari. I NICHOLAS , first archbishop of Messina. I RTJFFDS, archbishop of Cosenza. I THEOBALD , bishop and abbat of the royal monastery of Saint Mary Nuova. I ROBERT, bishop of Catana. ι β Hardly any of these places can now be traced under these names. 8 7 This is probably the name of the place, though in the text it is called " Sanctum clericum." 8 3 Called by the singular name of " privilegium," which was the usual name of charters confirming grants to churches.
