246 AJTNALS OF EOGEE DE HOVEDEJÎ. A.D. 1191. barons of England joined in a letter, and wrote -word to the king how his chancellor had laid waste the kingdom of England and his treasures, and how, by the common consent of the kingdom, he had been deposed. On the other hand, the chancellor wrote to the king, signifying how that his brother John had taken possession of his kingdom, and would place the crown on his own head, unless he should make haste and return with all speed. Of the return of Philip, king of France, from Acre, and of Ms journey. But now let us return to the king of France, who, in the meantime, leaving the object of his pilgrimage unperformed, had departed from the land of Jerusalem with fourteen galleys, and had passed before the city of Baruth, which was then in the hands of the pagans ; but he did not attack them. He next passed before the city of Sibelet and before the castles of Bitterns and of Hesse, and then came to the city of Tripolis, where he made a stay of some days. Departing thence, he passed before the castle of Arches, the castle of Albe, and Le Culiat, a castle of the Hospitallers. He next came to the episcopal city of Turcusa. It is worthy of remark, that before Turcusa there is an island in the sea, Aredosa by name, for which reason Turcusa is called the " Aredosan city." He next came to the good harbour of Haureda, departing from which place he passed before Margat, a castle of the Hospitallers, where Isaac, emperor of Cyprus, was kept confined in chains. He next came to the city of Valentia, then to the city of Sibel, then to the city of Melida, and then to the port of Saint Simeon. He next arrived before the city of Antioch, departing from which he came to the port of Bunel, then to the port of Alexandrietta. After this, he entered the land of the Armenians, which is called Armenia, and is the territory of Bupin de la Montaigne, being held under the prince of Antioch. He next came to a large river, the name of which is Thil, where there is a good city, which in like manner is called Thil. He then came to a large river called Curk, where there is a fine city deserted, also called Curk. He next came to a third large river, which is called Salef, where, upon this river, there is a large city, which is in like manner called Salef. It was in this river Salef that Frederic, emperor of the Bomans, was drowned, when he was leaving the territories of the sultan of Iconium.
