His heart resounded with blows, for it swelled with chivalry, stretching both the warrior’s breasts, as the crossbow does the cord––all too rash was his desire. The lord lay there, not sleeping at all, until he espied the grey dawn––it yielded as yet no bright sheen. The man who was his chaplain was duty-bound to be at the ready for the mass. He sang it at once, for God and for Gahmuret. His armour was immediately brought to him; he rode off to where he could find jousting. On this occasion he was mounted upon a charger well versed both in charging forward and leaping rapidly aside, turnable whenever its reins were tugged.

When they had come to court and their lawful claims had been heard, and they had all received their fiefs, hear now what they initiated. They desired, as their loyalty advised, rich and poor alike, the entire company, one single, small, earnest request: that the king should magnify brotherly loyalty by Gahmuret and do himself honour, by not expelling his brother entirely, but according him some portion of his land, by which token it might be seen that that lord might lay claim to his name and his liberty.

When they had come to court and their lawful claims had been heard, and they had all received their fiefs, hear now what they initiated. They desired, as their loyalty advised, rich and poor alike, the entire company, one single, small, earnest request: that the king should magnify brotherly loyalty by Gahmuret and do himself honour, by not expelling his brother entirely, but according him some portion of his land, by which token it might be seen that that lord might lay claim to his name and his liberty.
