Sample text

The new king is a paragon of all the virtues : modest, gifted, handsome, pious, generous to the clergy, gracious to knights and open­ handed to those of other ranks. He has at his court not only his own knights, but also men to whom he or his father had granted their freedom and these are so numerous as almost to constitute a sepa­ rate army. D. 1 000 The Prussians, learning that Boleslaw sets great store on obtaining possession ofthe body of Bishop Wojciech, whom they murdered three years previously, send ambassadors to Poland to tell the King that it would be pointless to invade Prussia, since the bishop 's body is buried in a secret place, but that, to please him, they are prepared to sell the body for its weight in silver.

However, his homeward progress is barred by a large force ofPetchenegs, which easily de­ feats him, either because his anny is overburdened with booty or because the site in which he chooses to do battle is unfavourable. He, himself, in trying to make his men stand finn and so pre­ vent a shameful rout, falls into the hands of his enemies, whose leader, Kura, has Sviatoslav's head severed and made into a goblet, ornamented with gold, from which he, Kura, drinks a daily toast to his triumph. D. 973 Otto I, King of the Romans andDuke of Saxony, suppressed many of the Saxon's sites that were dedicated to idolatry and made them subject to the Christian faith; he founded a metropolitan see in Magdeburg where he is buried in the church of St.

Ifhe should be unable to achieve this, he is prepared to do battle. The two armies are thus halted one on either side of the river, skirmishing, but otherwise doing little more than hurling verbal abuse and the occasional clod or stone at each other. Iaroslav has with him a foster-child and favourite, a man called Budy. He delights in taking a position on the river's bank and from there scoffing andjeering at Boleslaw and his knights, calling them cowards and pampered creatures and adding that if any dare to come and fight, he will slit his fat belly open.
