510 ANNAIS OF ROGER DE HOTEDEN. A.D. 1200. count of Evreux used to hold within the said boundaries. With regard to Hulcasme, in Normandy, the following shall be the terms agreed on : the fees and demesne shall remain in the hands of the said king of England and his heirs, just as the archbishop of Rouen held the same on the day on which he made the exchange for Andely ; beyond which the whole of the Hulcasme belongs to us. Also, we are not to be at liberty to erect fortifications beyond Jumieges, on our side of Normandy, nor beyond the borders of the forest of Vernon, but within the same. The king of England has also given as a marriage portion to our son Louis, together with his niece, the daughter of the King of Castille, the fief of Heraud, the fief of Carsarre, and the fief of Butures, just as Andrew de Calumac held the same of the king of England ; and of all the same we shall stand seised until such time as the said marriage shall have been consummated. And whatever may happen as regards the said marriage, after the same shall have taken place, we are to hold the said fiefs all the days of our life ; and after our death, the said fiefs are to revert to the said king of England and his heirs, if the before-named Louis, our son, shall not have an heir by the niece of the king of England. But if the king of England shall chance to die without an heir by the wife now married to him, then, together with the fiefs aforesaid, the king of England shall give to our son Louis, together with his said niece, by way of marriage portion, the fief of Hugh de Gournay, on this side of the sea of England, and the fief of earl Patrick, just as they hold the same of the king of England, on this side of the English sea. Also, the king of England has given to us thirty thousand marks of silver, full weight and lawful money, according to the law by which they were made, that is to say, of the value of thirteen shillings and four-pence each mark, as an equivalent for our reliefs and our fief of Brittany, which we have transferred to the king of England. King John has also received Arthur as his liegeman, so that Arthur will hold Brittany of the said king of England. Also, the said king of England, as being right heir of his brother, king Richard, shall hold of us all fiefs in such manner as his father and king Richard, his brother, held the same, and in such manner, as they are entitled to the fiefe, with the exception of those above mentioned, which remain with us, as before stated. With regard to the count of Angoulême and the viscount of Limoges, the said king John shall receive them as his liege
