A.D. 1191. PHILIP GIVES HIS HOTEÏT OF ACHE TO CONBAD. 217 of England, and falling on the ground at his feet, asked his forgiveness, on which the king of England put an end to all his anger and displeasure against him On the following day, also, the king of France came, and all the principal men of the army, to hear the matters in dispute between king Guido and the marquis Conrad. Accordingly, having taken their seats, the marquis Conrad arose, and standing in the midst of them, demanded the kingdom of Jerusalem in right of his wife ; while Guido of Lusignan, who had been king before its capture, and escaped from it when it was taken, and had commenced the siege of Acre, demanded restitution thereof to be made to him, showing that he had done nothing for which he deserved to lose his kingdom.
