A.D. 1193. TREATY FOE THE RELEASE OF THE KING. and the dukes of Louvain, Lemberg, and Saxony, and many other chieftains and nobles who had conspired against the emperor, on account of the death of the bishop of Liege, brother of the duke of Louvain, which had been contrived by the emperor. The king of England was also apprehensive that if this conference should take place, he himself would without doubt be delivered into the hands of the king of France.
