A.D. 1188. TRANSACTIONS IN NORMAND Γ. ' and Trie, Tenere conferences had been usually held between the kings of France and the dukes of Normandy, vowing that thenceforth there should be no more conferences held there. The earl of Flanders, however, and earl Theobald, and other earls and barons of the kingdom of France, laid down their arms, saying that they would never bear arms against Chris tians until they should have returned from their pilgrimage to Jerusalem. Upon this, the king of France, being deprived of the aid of his allies, requested an interview with the king of England ; which being acceded to, it was accordingly held at Chatillon, on the morrow of the day of Saint Faith, where terms of peace were to have been agreed to between them, as follows ; the king of France was to restore to the king of England what ever he had seized in his territories after the truce was broken, and earl Eichard was to restore to the count of Saint Gilles whatever he had taken from him by force of arms. The king of France also, prompted by his faithlessness, demanded of the king of England the castle of Pascy in pledge ; and, because the king of England refused to assent thereto, they separated mutually dissatisfied ; and the king of France, leaving the place, took the castle of Palud ; then passing through Chateau Eaoul, he led thençe a Bout of Brabanters as far as Bourges, promising them ample pay; but on arriving at Bourges they were seized, and the king took from them their horses, arms, and the whole of their money, and turned them adrift un armed and stripped. Earl Eichard, however, made an offer to the king of Prance to come to his court and to take his trial as to the matters that had taken place between him and the count of Saint Gilles ; that so at least peace might be made between the king of France and the king of England, his father ; a thing which greatly displeased the king, his father. ' After this conference, Nevolun Fitz Urse de Fretteval swore fealty to the king of England, and faithful service against all men ; on which the king of England secured to him by charter the honors of Lavardin and Faye ; he also gave to the king of England his son as a hostage, and many of the sons of his relations.
