A.D.1198. THE BEAS AND CANONS OF ΓΟΒΚ COME TO THE KING. 419 Accordingly, upon the election of the said Innocent as Roman Pontiff, having been from his infancy acquainted with all the blemishes of the Roman court, and wishing to change things for the better, immediately after bis election he dismissed the greater part of the janitors and doorkeepers of the court, in order that both clerks as well as laymen, who had any complaint to make, might enjoy freer access to him. On the fifth day before the ides of March, in the same year, Mary, countess of Champagne, departed this life, the mother of Henry, count of Champagne, who was lord of Acre. The said countess was sister of Philip, king of Prance, on the father's side, and sister of Richard, king of England, on the mother's side. In the same year, Geoffrey, archbishop of York, came into Normandy by command of his brother, Richard, king of England, in hopes of making peace with the king. Por the kinghad sent for the deans and canons of York to come to him in Normandy, wishing to make peace between the archbishop and them ; however, the archbishop, before the canons had arrived, had made a reconciliation with the king his brother; upon which the king made him full restitution of his archbishopric, and ordered Eobert his chaplain to cross over into England with Master Honorius, the clerk and deputy of the said archbishop, to be present at the said restitution, on which the said archbishop conferred on the said Master Honorius the archdeaconry of Richmond ; for the king had made a promise to the archbishop that for the future he would not throw any difficulty in the way of his presentations. As the dean and canons of York did not make their appearance before the king at the time appointed, nor yet send a sufficient proxy in their behalf, the archbishop, having received leave from the king, withdrew from the court, for the purpose of going to Rome on the king's business as well as his own. However, on the third day after, the deans and canons of York came to the king, and prevailed upon him to allow the restitution which he had granted to the archbishop to be delayed until the archbishop's return ; and, having thus impeded the business of the archbishop, the dean and canons returned to York, making great boasts of the favours they had received from the king, and saying that they had the king's charter that he would not come to any complete understanding with the archbishop unless they were included in the reconciliation.
