'218 ANHALS OF ROGER DE HOTEDEN. A.D. 1191. day, the king of France again asked the king of England to agree to his return home, but he could on no terms obtain his sanction to his withdrawal, unless he should first swear upon the Holy Evangelists that he would well and faithfully protect the territories and subjects of the king of England until his return, and would inflict no injury or grievance upon them, or allow the same to be done by any one else. After this, the king of France appointed the duke of Burgundy chief of his army, giving up to him a great part of his treasure. Before his departure, he also gave to Baymond, prince of Antioch, one hundred knights and five hundred men-at-arms for the defence of his territory against the pagans, and gave to each of the knights forty marks of sBver as his pay from the feast of Saint Michael until Easter, appointing Robert de Quincy their governor and captain.
