196 ANNALS OF EOGER BE HOTEBEN. A.D. 1191. Alice : and, in consideration of this treaty, the king of England promised that he would pay yearly, for the next five years, two thousand marks sterling; of which, at the beginning of the treaty, he paid to the king of France two thousand marks. Also, when they should have returned to their own territories, the king of England was to deliver to the king of France his sister Alice, and Gisors and all the other places that the king of France had granted him as a marriage portion with his sister. Also, by virtue of this treaty, the king of France gave to the king of England leave to marry whomsoever he should choose ; and granted to him, and conferred the same by his charter, that the dukedom of Brittany should always belong to the demesne of the duke of Normandy, and that the duke of Brittany should always be a liegeman of the duke of Normandy, and be answerable to him as his liege lord, and th« duke of Normandy should be answerable to the king of France both as to the dukedom of Brittany as well as the dukedom of Normandy. Accordingly, on that day the king of France and the king of England were made friends, and confirmed aB those covenants with good faith, and upon oath, with the testimony of their seals. In the same month of March, on the third day before the calends of April, being Saturday, Philip, king of France, left the port of Messina with all his fleet ; and on the twentysecond day following, that is to say, the Saturday in Easter week, he arrived with his army at the siege of Acre. The king of England, however, and his army remained at Messina after the departure of the king of France. On the same day also on which the king of France left Messina, queen Eleanor arrived there, the mother of Bichard, king of England, bringing with her Berengaria, daughter of Sancho, king of Navarre, whom the said king of England was to marry : on the fourth day after which, the said queen Eleanor again returned on her way to England, with the intention of passing through Borne, to treat of the business of Geoffrey, the archbishop elect of York ; for, through her the king of England sent word to the Supreme Pontiff, and humbly entreated him to confirm the election of the said Geoffrey and consecrate him archbishop of York, or else to aBow him to be consecrated by some one else. On the departure of queen Eleanor, the daughter of the king of Navarre remained in the charge of the king of England, with Joanna, queen of Sicily, the sister of the said king.
