In addition to this, the said emperor granted to Matilda, duchess of Saxony, in consideration of the love he bore to the king of England, her father, permission to remain at perfect liberty and under his protection, and to enjoy all her dowry freely and quietly ; and the emperor further agreed that, if she should prefer to go into exile with her lord, he M Rather " bishops," although the bishop elect alone was now surviving.
