In the meantime, queen Eleanor, the mother of John, king of England, whom he had sent to Alphonso, king of Castille, for the purpose of giving the daughter of the said king of Castille in marriage to Louis, the son of Philip, king of France, returned, having obtained the daughter of the king of Castille.
