13 "was the first known Cobb to emigrate from England to the PlymouthColony, Cape Cod, MA. Many distinguished descendants have long searchedfor his English origin and background. In developing this vignette ofthe immigrant I have drawn liberally from the scholarly works of PhilipL. Cobb, author of The Cobb Family (1907), Richard Cobb, Harvardprofessor and Richard Cobb a retired Navy Supply Corps Captain. However,the hypotheses and conclusions contained herein are my own. (TracyAshley Crocker Sr.)

Much is known on the activities of Henry Cobb, the Puritan, in theBay Colony but little has been done to unravel the specifics of hisorigin. There is general agreement that "The Elder Henry or the DeaconHenry Cobb" came from an area in County Kent east of the Medway Riverwhich flows out of the hills of southern Kent through Maidstone andChatham and into the Thames Estuary. It is within this area thatinhabitants are called "Men of Kent" (Jutish origin); those to the westof the Medway are known as "Kentish Men" (Saxon origin). ProfessorRichard Cobb, through study and acquaintance with the Cape Coddescendants of Henry Cobb, suggests that as a young man Henry Cobb was"rather short, with blue eyes and reddish sandy hair." Interesting, asthis description agrees with the perceived appearance of the GermanicJutes who invaded and settled in Great Britain in the 5th century.
The most visible trail of "Henry the Elder" in England is found inhis relationship with his church leader, the Reverend John Lothrop.Lothrop, "a man of good family and education" was baptized at Eton on 20December 1584. He received BA and MA degrees at Queens College,Cambridge. In 1611 we find him with the established Church of England atEgerton, Kent, a distance of about 15 miles from the probable home ofHenry Cobb in Reculver, Kent. Obviously disenchanted with the autocraticdogma of the King's Church, the Reverend Lothrop is found as minister ofan independent church in London in 1623; and then on 29 April 1632, wefind him imprisoned in London with 40 members of his flock for violatingthe laws relating to religious gatherings. Following two yearsimprisonment, Lothrop left England in the ship "Griffin" with his familyand some members of his church for the Plymouth colony, arriving there18 September 1634. Here Henry Cobb, the Lothrop protege who had been inthe Colony for about five years, responded to the call of his old friendand esteemed pastor. He aided the Reverend in getting his family andchurch established in the newly formed town of Scituate. Lothrop'srecords published in the New England Register, Volumes IX and X, leaveslittle doubt of Henry Cobb's membership in Lothrop's London church:

It is very probable that immigrant Henry Cobb of Plymouth andAmbrose Cobb of the Virgina Colony were of the same Kent Family, theyshared a common progenitor in John Cobb, Esquire (b. ca 1300) of Cobb'sCourt, Romney, Kent. The suggested (but undocumented) relationshipsshown are based primarily on the association of the family names,locations, and dates. That is, Henry Cobb of Plymouth Colony wouldappear to be a second son of Henry Cobb (1561-1617) of Reculver, Kent.The son Henry was born about 1605. (He married Patience Hurst inPlymouth in 1631; English Yeoman of his time, married at age 26, thusthe basis for his date of birth). Most men of Kent were farmers in anarea famous for hops, fruit, and grain. Even in this age, importance wasattached to the idea of status. The term "Yeoman" was commonly used inlegal and other documents to denote status above "Husbandman" (smaller,less prosperous farmer) and below that of "Gentleman" (upper middleclass). Yeomen, from whom Henry Cobb was descended, were reasonably welleducated. Some Yeomen sons attended the universities; some becameclergymen. A review of the Cobbs of Kent and a person inspection of theManor houses at Reculver and Eastleigh Court suggest 16th century gentrybut 17th century Yeomen. Suffice it to say that the emigrant Henry Cobbdid not inherit his father's estate. The major inheritance, by custom,probably went to Benjamin Cobb, the first-born son. This situation, aswell as the significant influence of Reverend Lothrop, could have giventhe impressionable 18 year old Henry Cobb ample justification to seek anapprenticeship in the shops or pubs of London in 1623, the year thatLothrop formed his church there. The influence of the charismatic Lotropon the Cobbs of Reculver must have been substantial. The Cobb home atReculver was about 15 miles from Egerton, Kent where Lothrop was inresidence from 1611 to 1623. Henry Cobb, the assumed father of theemigrant Henry, was himself censured by the establishment. He had becomeLord of the Manor of Bishopstone, Reculver Kent, when his father Richarddied in 1582. In the record of the Visitations of Archdeacon ofCanterbury in 1599 is found the following "We present these personswhose names are hereunder written for they refuse to pay unto a cessmade by divers of our parish for the reparation of our said church:.....Henry Cobb 3 shillings, 10 pence (owed)."
The nature of Henry Cobb's apprenticeship or trade in London isopen to conjecture. The fact that he came from an area rich in hops andgrain and later in the Colony he was authorized to dispense winesuggests the production and/or sale of ale, the national beverage of theera. From the Plymouth Colony Record 1173; "5 June 1644, Henry Cobb islycensed to draw wine at Barnstable."
What better place than an English pub in the 17th century to keepabreast of politics, religion and emigration. Henry Cobb of London mustcertainly have been aware of a number of significant events, viz: Thatin 1604, in a declaration at Hampton Court, James I said of thePuritans, "I shall make them conform themselves or I will harry them outof the Land or else do worst." Henry must have known the story of anundereducated group of separatists called "Pilgrims" who sough refugefirst in Amsterdam and subsequently in Leyden, Holland; and theunwilling to be assimilated into the Dutch culture, made their way toPlymouth in 1620 aboard the "Mayflower". (of the 101 passengers on thefirst voyage of the Mayflower, 35 were Leyden adventurers.) In 1628 thePuritans of Henry Cobb's sect began their mass exodus. In 1630 JohnWinthrop, a strong and able leader, led nearly 1000 Puritans with theircattle and horses to settlements in the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Ingeneral the Puritans were a wealthier and better educated class than thePilgrims but they shared their deeply religious convictions. It wasshortly after the Winthrop departure that Henry Cobb made his move,probably in the ship "The Anne" in 1629. Other possible ships include "Mayflower II' and the "Little James", which also arrived at Cape Cod in1629. Professor Cobb said in his character analysis of Henry, theemigrant, that he was "sensible, shrewd, adverse to making trouble orbeing a part of it." Cobb didn't linger in London long enough to bejailed in the famous "clink" with the zealous Lothrop and his followersin 1632. When the great Civil War of 1642 came about to settle thequestion of supremacy between King and Parliament, High Church andPuritans, Henry Cobb is found saving souls and selling wine inMassachusetts."

33 * BIOGRAPHY
Henry was born in 1068 in Selby, Yorkshire, the only child ofWilliam the Conqueror to be born in England. He was also the only son tobe born in 'purple' as only two years previously William had become kingof England. As the youngest child he was his mother's favourite and whenshe died she left him her English estates.

He had a good education, learning to read and write Latin as wellas English and Law. In 1086 he was knighted by his father. When hisfather died in 1087 his brother Robert received the duchy of Normandywhile William II Rufus became king of England. Henry, having estates inboth territories like so many other Norman barons, had to maintain hisrelations with two overlords.

When in 1100 William Rufus mysteriously died, Henry was elected tosucceed as king of England and on 6 August he was crowned in WestminsterAbbey. His first act as king was to restore Anselm as archbishop ofCanterbury, then he started to look for a bride. For his queen heselected Edith of Scotland, daughter of King Malcolm Canmore and, moreimportantly, of St. Margaret of Wessex who was a descendant of the kingsof England prior to the Conquest. In honour of the king's mother,Matilda of Flanders, Edith changed her name to Matilda. Restoring Anselmdid not ensure peace in the kingdom as he refused to do homage to theking, claiming to hold the church estates in the name of the pope.Anselm was then forced into exile, and peace was restored only in 1107when the king's sister Adela, countess of Blois, found a solutionacceptable to both: bishops would pay homage to the king and the kingwould allow clerical investiture.

When Henry's brother Robert Curthose, duke of Normandy returnedfrom Crusade he proved such a bad ruler that the barons in Normandyrevolted and asked for Henry's support. Henry was also motivated by awish to eliminate the continuing threat from Robert and the drain on hisfiscal resources from the annual payment to him, so in 1105 he led anexpeditionary force across the English Channel. On the morning of 28September 1106, exactly 40 years after their father had landed inEngland, the decisive battle between his two sons took place in thesmall village of Tinchebray. Robert's army was defeated and he wascaptured. Robert was imprisoned and Henry became duke of Normandy.

Henry was a good diplomat; even though troubles within Normandyand with France continued, he made a successful alliance when his onlydaughter Matilda married the Emperor Heinrich V in 1114. In 1119 hisonly son William went to the continent and married a daughter of thecount of Anjou. On the journey home the 'White Ship' was wrecked andWilliam with his entourage drowned. Henry's wife had died in 1118, buthe waited until 1122 before taking a second wife, Adeliza of Louvain. Hehad fathered two legitimate and probably nineteen illegitimate children,but his second marriage remained childless.

In 1126 Henry designated his daughter, the widowed EmpressMatilda, as his successor; and in 1127 he selected Geoffrey, count ofAnjou, as her second husband even though he was ten years younger thanMatilda. Henry travelled a great deal between England and Normandy, andon 1 August 1135 he left England for the last time. He died 1 December1135 at St. Denis-le-Fermont near Gisors. His body was taken back toEngland and buried at Reading Abbey.

From Encylcopedia Britannica Onlines, article entitled Henry I 'Also,HENRY BEAUCLERC (GOOD SCHOLAR), French HENRI BEAUCLERC youngestandablest of William I the Conqueror's sons, who as king ofEngland(1100-35) strengthened the crown's executive powers and, likehisfather, also ruled Normandy (from1106).' 'Henry I was a skillful,intelligent monarch who achieved peace inEngland, relative stability inNormandy, and notable administrativeadvances on both sides of theChannel. Under Henry, the Anglo-Normanstate his father had created wasreunited. Royal justices began makingsystematic tours of the Englishshires, but, although hisadministrative policies were highly efficient,they were notinfrequently regarded as oppressive. His reign marked asignificantadvance from the informal, personal monarchy of former timestowardthe bureaucratized state that lay in the future. It also markedashift from the wide-ranging imperialism of earlier Norman leaderstoconsolidation and internal development. In the generationsbeforeHenry's accession, Norman dukes, magnates, and adventurershadconquered southern Italy, Sicily, Antioch, and England. Henry wonhismajor battles but preferred diplomacy or bribery to the risks ofthebattlefield. Subduing Normandy in 1106, he contented himselfwithkeeping domestic peace, defending his Anglo-Norman stateagainstrebellion and invasion, and making alliances withneighbouringprinces.'

Wratislaw was born about 888, the son of Borziwoy I, duke of Bohemia,and Ludmilla, heiress of Psov (later canonised, who is venerated as apatroness of Bohemia). He was the younger brother of Spitignew I, whosucceeded their father as duke of Bohemia. Spitignew is rememberedsolely for his 895 alliance with Arnulf, duke of Bavaria (the Diet ofAugsburg). which separated Bohemia from Great Moravia. Designed toprotect Bohemia against the ravages of Magyar raiders, this pact alsoopened Bohemia to East Frankish Carolingian culture and paved the wayfor the eventual triumph of Roman Catholicism in Czech spiritualaffairs. Spitignew died in 915 and was succeeded by Wratislaw.

About 906 Wratislaw married Drahomira von Stodar. They had threesons and three daughters, of whom their son Boleslaw would have progeny.Wratislaw died in battle against the Magyars. His date of death isgenerally given as 13 February 921. He was succeeded by his 13-year-oldson Wenceslas, who ruled Bohemia from the age of 18 but was murdered in935 by a group of nobles allied with his younger brother Boleslaw.Wenceslas was canonised, and remains the patron saint of the Czechpeople.

1st King of Scots (or King of Alba)

* BIOGRAPHY
Kenneth was born about 800, the son of Alpin, king of Kintyre.Kenneth was king of the Picts and, according to national myth, firstking of Scots, earning him the posthumous epithet 'An Ferbasach' ('TheConqueror'). His undisputed legacy was to produce a dynasty of rulerswho claimed descent from him. Even though he cannot be regarded as thefather of Scotland, he was the founder of the dynasty which ruled thatcountry for much of the medieval period.

Kenneth's origins are uncertain, as are his ties, if any, toprevious kings of the Picts of Dál Riata (the Gaelic over-kingdom on thewestern seaboard of Scotland with some territory on the northern coastsof Ireland). Medieval genealogies are unreliable sources, but somehistorians accept Kenneth's descent from the Cenél nGabrain of DálRiata.

Although later traditions provided details of his reign and death,Kenneth's father Alpin is not listed as among the kings in the _DuanAlbanach_ (Song of the Scots), the Middle Gaelic poem found with the_Lebor Bretnach,_ a Gaelic version of the _Historia Brittonum_attributed to Nennius. The idea that Kenneth was a Gael is not entirelyrejected, but modern historiography distinguishes between Kenneth as aGael by culture, and perhaps in ancestry, and Kenneth as a king ofGaelic Dál Riata. Kenneth could well have been the first sort of Gael.Kings of the Picts before him, from Bridei, son of Der-Ilei, his brotherNechtan as well as Oengus I (Angus I), son of Fergus and his presumeddescendants, were all at least partly Gallicised. The idea that theGaelic names of Pictish kings in Irish annals represented translationsof Pictish ones was challenged by the discovery of the inscription_Custantin filius Fircus(sa),_ the latinised name of the Pictish kingCaustantin, son of Fergus, on the Dupplin Cross.

Kenneth's rise to power can be placed in the context of the recentend of the previous dynasty, which had dominated Fortriu (an ancientPictish kingdom, often used synonymously with Pictland in general) fortwo or four generations. This followed the death of King Uen, son ofOengus of Fortriu, his brother Bran, Aed mac Boanta and many others inbattle against the Vikings in 839. The resulting succession crisisseems, if the Pictish Chronicle's king-lists have any validity, to haveresulted in at least four would-be kings warring for supreme power.

Kenneth's reign is dated from 843, but it was probably not until848 that he defeated the last of his rivals for power. The _PictishChronicle_ claims that he was king in Dál Riata for two years beforebecoming Pictish king in 843, but this is not generally accepted. In849, Kenneth had relics of St. Columba, which may have included theMonymusk Reliquary, transferred from Iona to Dunkeld. Other than theseare bare facts, the _Chronicle of the Kings of Alba_ reports that heinvaded Saxonia six times, captured Melrose and burnt Dunbar, and alsothat Vikings laid waste to Pictland, reaching far into the interior.

The reign of Kenneth also saw an increased degree of Norsesettlement in the outlying areas of modern Scotland. The Shetlands, theOrkneys, Caithness, Sutherland, the Western Isles and the Isle of Man,and part of Ross were settled; the links between Kenneth's kingdom andIreland were weakened, those with southern England and the continentalmost broken. In the face of this, Kenneth and his successors wereforced to consolidate their position in their kingdom, and the unionbetween the Picts and the Gaels, already progressing for severalcenturies, began to strengthen. By the time of Donald II, the kingswould be called neither of the Gaels nor of the Scots, but of Alba.

Kenneth died from a tumour on 13 February 858 at the palace ofCinnbelachoir, perhaps near Scone. The annals report the death as thatof the 'king of the Picts', not the 'king of Alba'. The title 'king ofAlba' is not used until the time of Kenneth's grandsons Donald II(Domnall mac Causatin) and Constantine II (Constantin mac Aeda). TheFragmentary Annals of Ireland quote a verse lamenting Kenneth's death:Because Cináerd with many troops lives no longer there is weeping inevery house; there is no king of his worth under heaven as far as theborders of Rome.

Kenneth left at least two sons, Constantine and Aed, who werelater kings, and at least two daughters. One daughter married Run, kingof Strathclyde, and Eochaid mac Run, king of the Picts, resulted fromthis marriage. Kenneth's daughter Máerl Muire married two importantIrish kings. Her first husband was Aed Finliath of the Cenél nEógain.Niall Glúndub, ancestor of the O'Neill, was the son of this marriage.Her second husband was Flann Sinna of Clann Cholmáin.

FROM: P L Kessler , ...The History Files, HomePublishing A(c)1999, www.users.globalnet.co.uk\\_plk\\history.htm,Internet. 843 AD Kenneth rules from Scone (Fortriu, modern Forteviot),capital of the Southern Picts. 850 AD Kenneth rules Pictland andunites most of the country, a feat which is extended to cover allScotland by subsequent kings.

succeeded his father as King of Galloway and other parts of Scotland on20 July or in August 834, and became King of the area known as Dalriadain 841. In 843/4, he became King of the Picts, thus uniting the oldGaelic kingdoms of Alba for the first time, and by 846 he was firmlyestablished as King of Scotland.

36 * REMARKS:
Crusader 1099

* BIOGRAPHY
Hugues was born in 1057, the son of Henri I, king of France, andAnna of Kiev. He was the younger brother of King Philippe I. After 1067he married Adelaide, comtesse de Vermandois et de Valois, only child ofHeribert IV, comte de Vermandois et de Valois and Adèle, comtesse deValois. Hugues and Adelaide had five children of whom four would haveprogeny.

In early 1096 Hugues and Philippe began discussing the FirstCrusade after news of the Council of Clermont reached them in Paris.Although Philippe could not participate, as he had been excommunicated,Hugues was said to have been influenced to join the Crusade after aneclipse of the moon on 11 February 1096.

That summer Hugues' army left France for Italy, where they wouldcross the Adriatic Sea into territory of the Byzantine empire, unlikethe other Crusader armies which were travelling by land. On the way,many of the soldiers led by fellow Crusader Emicho von Leiningen joinedHugues' army after Emicho was defeated by the Hungarians, whose land hehad been pillaging. Hugues crossed the Adriatic from Bari in SouthernItaly, but many of his ships were destroyed in a storm off the Byzantineport of Dyrrhachium.

Hugues and most of his army were rescued and escorted toConstantinople, where they arrived in November 1096. Prior to hisarrival, Hugues sent an arrogant, insulting letter to the Eastern RomanEmperor Alexius I Comnenos, according to the emperor's biography by hisdaughter (the _Alexiad_), demanding that Alexius meet with him.

'Know, O King, that I am King of Kings, and superior to all whoare under the sky. You are now permitted to greet me, on my arrival, andto receive me with magnificence, as befits my nobility.'

Alexius was already weary of the armies about to arrive, after theunruly mob led by Peter the Hermit had passed through earlier in theyear. Alexius kept Hugues in custody in a monastery until Hugues sworean oath of vassalage to him.

After the Crusaders had successfully made their way across Seljukterritory and, in 1098, captured Antioch, Hugues was sent back toConstantinople to appeal for reinforcements from Alexius. Alexius wasuninterested, however, and Hugues, instead of returning to Antioch tohelp plan the siege of Jerusalem, went back to France. There he wasscorned for not having fulfilled his vow as a crusader to complete apilgrimage to Jerusalem, and Pope Paschal II threatened to excommunicatehim. He joined the minor Crusade of 1101, but was wounded in battle withthe Turks in Asia Minor about 5 September, and died of his wounds on 18October in Tarsus.

In 1103 his widow Adelaide married Renaud, comte deClermont-en-Beauvaisis, and they had two children. Adelaide died on 28September 1120 or 1124.

138 About 1018 the 'Manichaean' teachings appeared in Aquitaine; this sectnot only rejected both baptism and the Cross but apparently observedstrict asceticism. Ten years later, ten of the canons of the Church ofthe Holy Cross at Orléans were accused of being 'Manichaeans' and ofworshipping the devil. These canons, which included the confessor ofQueen Constance, rejected the sacraments of the Church and denied thehuman birth of Christ together with the reality of his Passion andResurrection. Brought to trial before the King, Robert 'the Pious', andan assemblage of bishops, these heretics were consigned to the flames,yet not before Queen Constance struck out the eye of her formerconfessor. CAPET, Robert II King of the Franks (I10319)
 
139 About 1081 he married Adela of Normandy, the formidable daughter ofWilliam The Conqueror, and by her fathered seven children. WhenStephen's father died in 1090 he became Count of Blois and Chartres.In1095 Adela became Regent when her husband took part in the firstcrusade. He had no enthusiasm for this duty but Adela considered that heought to go, so he went. There was never any nonsense in their householdabout who made the decisions---she did. Stephen de Blois went togetherwith Adela's brother, Robert, Duke of Normandy. Having marched souththrough Italy, Stephen and his brother-in-law decided to spend thewinter comfortably in southern Italy before continuing on their way.When at last these two leaders decided to embark their men at Brindisi,disaster struck them. It was a very mediaeval kind of disaster: thefirst ship to leave port capsized and sank with the loss of all handstogether with many pack-animals, stores, and chests of money. Most oftheir armies allowed themselves to be shipped and, after a rough andunpleasant crossing, they reached Constantinople in May 1096. Stephen deBlois was impressed by the city but reserved his greatest admiration forthe Emperor Alexius. "Your father, my beloved," he wrote to Adela, "mademany gifts, but he was almost nothing compared with this man". Onecannot help but wonder how the formidable Adela reacted to this remarkabout her father, William the Conqueror; however, since her husband wasthe better part of two thousand miles away, perhaps for once he himselfdid not much mind how she reacted. Godfrey of Bouillon had attacked thecity of Nicaea and was joined, in early June 1096, by Stephen de Blois,Robert of Normandy and Raymond of Toulouse. They celebrated theirassault by cutting off the heads of as many Turks as they could find andcatapulting them over the city walls into the streets. Others were setup on spikes in front of the gates in full view of the depresseddefenders. A Byzantine force took control of the city and deprived thecrusaders of another massacre by allowing the Turks to escape. Stephenwrote to his wife in high spirits: "In five weeks' time we shall be inJerusalem, unless we are held up at Antioch". After the jointcrusader-force defeated another Turkish army, the retreating Turks laidwaste to the country, burning the crops and destroying or befouling thewells. The weather was still painfully hot and it was not long beforehunger and thirst began to take their toll. Stephen wrote to Adela tosay that it was a great mistake to imagine that the sun always shone inSyria, for "throughout this winter we have endured intense cold andincessant rain". Later Stephen marched his men to Alexandretta as he sawno point in having them massacred by the Atabeg of Mosul. Afterwards hewas to be rebuked bitterly for this 'cowardice' by the formidable Adela.He returned to France in 1099 but was forced by the inexorable Adela toreturn to the East, there to redeem his tarnished reputation which hedid by being killed in the Battle of Ramleh. Etienne II Comte de Blois Chartres (I4359)

155 Adela of Normandy, daughter of William the Conqueror, was the mother ofStephen, King of England, whose right to the throne derived through her.She was married to Stephen, Count of Meaux en Brie. Upon the death ofhis father in 1090, her husband succeeded to the counties of Blois andChartres. She took an active interest in civil and ecclesiasticalaffairs and was instrumental in rebuilding the cathedral of Chartres instone. In 1095 Adela became Regent when her husband took part in thefirst crusade. He had no enthusiasm for this duty but Adela consideredthat he ought to go, so he went. There was never any nonsense in theirhousehold about who made the decisions---she did. Stephen de Blois wenttogether with Adela's brother, Robert, Duke of Normandy. In 1099,Stephen returned to France but was forced by Adela to return to the Eastto redeem his, according to Adela, 'tarnished' reputation, which he didby being killed in the battle of Ramleh, on 19 May 1102. Adela continuedas Regent during the minority of her sons and was increasingly active inpublic life. Anselm, her guest and teacher in 1097, was oftenentertained by her during 1103 and 1105. Consequently she affected atemporary reconciliation between him and her brother, King Henry I ofEngland. In 1107 Adela entertained Pope Pascal during Easter and thefollowing year was hostess to Boemund of Antiochia. She made her sonThibaud her successor in 1109 and entered a convent in the diocese ofAutun. Here she continued to wield an important influence in public andclerical affairs. She persuaded Thibaut to join her brother, Henri I,against France in 1117 and was a benevolent patroness of churches andmonasteries. She died in 1137 and was buried at Caen. DE NORMANDIE, Adèle (I4360)

164 After having lost his child-wife, Isabelle of Flanders, he went oncrusade, then hurried back to marry again for the sake of his dynasty ashis son, Louis, was a sickly child. What he needed was the daughter of aking and, on 14 August 1193, he married Ingeborg (Isambour), daughter ofKing Valdemar of Denmark. Arrangements had been made for her to becrowned queen the day after the nuptials but, during the wedding night,Philippe's feelings changed to repulsion. In Compiègne, before anassembly, fifteen duly sworn witnesses, twelve of them from the king'sfamily, solemnly calculated the degrees of consanguinity and showed thatPhilippe and Ingeborg were fourth cousins, a prohibiting degree formarriage. However, this solution was not accepted by Ingeborg's brother,the Danish king, who appealed to Pope Celestine III, claiming thegenealogies to be wrong, but the pope gave Philippe no more than awarning. In June 1196, Philippe III married the beautiful Agnès deMeran. With Ingeborg still alive, this was bigamy. The new pope,Innocent III, ordered Philippe to part from Agnès and, laying Franceunder an interdict, wanted to suspend all religious services.Negotiations were to last fifteen years and, because of the Catharupsurge, the interdict was not applied. In 1201 in Soissons, thechurch confronted Philippe but, after a fortnight's arguing, hedeparted, taking Ingeborg with him. On 29 July 1201 Agnès de Meran diedand Philippe could no longer be regarded as a bigamist; and so, inNovember of that year, the pope legitimised the two children of Philippeand Agnès. In 1205 a 'damsel from Arras' bore him a bastard son and, asPhilippe would have nothing to do with Ingeborg, she was spared theperils of childbearing. As it had not been consummated, the pope waswilling to declare the marriage with Ingeborg void. However, they hadnot counted on Ingeborg who maintained that she and Philippe had slepttogether. To satisfy pope, king and queen, the only solution seemed tobe that the queen should take the veil and enter a convent; but then, inApril 1213, Philippe announced he was taking back his wife. Philippe II 'Auguste' roi de France (I4281)
 
165 After her husband had established peace, he wanted to increase thetributes from the Slavic tribe of the Derevlyanins. In 945 he went and,after pillaging them, returned to Kiev. However, when he prepared toleave again, the Derevlyanins went to meet him and killed him. TheDerevlyanins then sent twenty of their best men to Olga and said: "Wehave killed your husband, for he was like a wolf, stealing andplundering, while our princes are good and have taken good care of theland of Dereva. Marry our prince Mal!" To this she replied that shecouldn't resurrect her husband and so asked them to come the next day tobe honoured before the people of Kiev. She told them that as a specialhonour they should not ride on horses nor go on foot, but would becarried in the boat they arrived in. During the night, a deep pit wasdug and the following day, as was announced, the twenty men were carriedin their boat, but which was then thrown into the pit where they wereburied alive. She then sent a message to the Derevlyanins in which sheclaimed that the people of Kiev would not release her unless she wascollected by their most distinguished men. On their arrival Olga ordereda bath to be prepared for them. The hut was heated up and theDerevlyanins went in. When they began to wash, Olga's men secured thehut and, on her orders, set it on fire, and all inside were burnedalive. With her son and their army, she then went to the city ofIskorosten where her husband had been killed. Although they encircledthe city, they were unable to take it. After the siege had lasted almostthe whole summer, she decided to take a different course. She sent amessage to the town that they would be starved as they could not worktheir fields, and that she only wanted them to pay tribute. For thistribute she requested three doves and three sparrows from each house.Gladly consenting, the Derevlyanins collected three doves and threesparrows from each house. Olga then announced that, as they hadsubmitted to her, she would return to Kiev the next day. However, Olgathen distributed the doves and sparrows with the order that lightedtinder, wrapped in little pieces of cloth, be tied to each dove andsparrow. At dusk the birds were released, the doves returning to theirdove-cotes and the sparrows to their nests under the eaves.Consequently, dove-cotes, outbuildings, towers and barns all caughtfire, and there was no household where there was no fire. The peoplefled the town, only to be caught by Olga's soldiers. She then burned thewhole city, killing some of it's people and selling others as slaves. In955 she went to Constantinople where the Emperor baptised herpersonally. At first the Emperor had wanted to marry her but then gaveher many gifts and allowed her to return. She tried to convert her sonto Christianity but he refused, yet would allow anyone in Kiev to bebaptised but with the proviso that they would be ridiculed. In 965 herson, as ruler of Kiev, defeated the Khazars, the Ossetians and theCircussians. While he was away in 968, the Pechenegs laid siege to Kievwhere Olga was with her grandsons. With Kiev hermetically sealed, no onecould send a message to her son until a young boy said he would go. Hewent with a bridle in his hands, calling out, "Has no one seen myhorse?" As he spoke the Pechenegs language, they thought him one oftheir own. At the river he took off his clothes and swam across. Here hefound a small band of soldiers who, next morning, approached the city insmall boats. On arrival they blew hard on their trumpets, creating theimpression of being a large force, at which the Pechenegs fled. OD PSKOV, Saint Olga Grand Duchess of Kiev (I278)
