Eugenius auxilio Arbogastis tyrannisat ; So speaketh Sigibert, pursuing the end of Valentian. As we reade in the Panagyricke, for the third Consulship of the Emperor Honorius, where speaking of the victory giuen to Theodosius, he saith O nimiam dilecte Deo, cui fundit ab antris Aolus armatas hyemes, cui militat aether, Et coniurati veniunt ad Classica venti.
Before this Battaile, the tyrant Eugenius by the counsell of Arbogastes would haue made the French afraid, but obserue what Sulpitius Alexander saith. So saith the diuine wisedome. And the subiect of his discontentment, ensued from this, that Theodosius had preferred Stilico with him; as we learne of Claudian, his second Booke In Ruffinum. So soone as the newes were certainely knowne, concerning the death of Great Theodosius ; as suddenly were the Alemans and French in the Field, to repasse the Rhine, and seeke their further fortune in Gaule. In the which voyage, he saith, that the Kings of the Alemans and French, came and did him honour, laying downe their Armes, to the end they might haue peace with him.
This was the first militarie expedition of Stilico, against the Nations enemies to the Romaine Empire in the West, exalting themselues as foes to his Maister Honorius. Mouerat omnes Maurorum Gildo populos. But this new vpstart Traytour, was paid with coyne of the same stampe, as is onely currant and due to such, as are fellons and Traytours to their Prince.
His tribuit leges, his obside foedera sancit Indicto, bellorum alios transcribit in vsus, Militet vt nostris detonsa Sicambria signis? In two words he expresseth the Alemans, by the name of Sweues; and the French by that of the Sicambrians, as we haue related already. The end of these two Brethren Kings, is liuely described by Claudians.
Claudian, in the second Panegyricke, spoken to the said Stilico, maketh Rome to speake in this manner. And in one of them, their King Godegisilus was shine in the field, with twenty thousand of his people, perishing by the edge of the Swords of the French. Gregory of Tours. Constantine seeing all comfort fled from him, despoiled himselfe of all his Imperiall habits, and fled into a Church, where he was admitted to be a Priest.
And that God suffred the Father and Son being both ordained Priests thus to be slaine and massacred; because they preferred earthly Empire, before that which is heauenly. So we learne by Floardus in the Historie of Reims, and before him by S. Fortunatus Bishop of Poictiers, saith, that he was descended of the auncient stocke of the Francs-Sicambrians, whom S. Which will serue to contradict such, as in meere ignorance haue written, that Pharamond, was the first King of the French, and haue supposed falsities vnder fabulous names, inuented at mens pleasures, to be deriued out of Dauids Psalmes, Og, Bazan Regem.
Witnesse whereof was Ebodichus, traiterously massacred by his hoste Ecdicius, and Duke Ingomer, his owne brother, slaine at the Siege of Arles. I make not any account at all, of Princes spoken of by such as are ignorant in the French Historie, deriuing them from the ashes of old Troy. But then to remarke the Kings his Successours; the quest is obscure, and drowned in the Sea of eternall obliuion. And therefore we purpose to speake of none, but such as wee haue light of, by testimony of our enemies the Romanes themselues, in their Histories and Poesies. Now; among those certaine and assured Kings, which ought to precede Pharamond, I obserue the first to be;.
Ascaricus, who commanded ouer the French, in the time of Constantine called the Great. Theodomir, surprized and defeated by Iulian the Apostata, who sent him prisoner to Rome, with the Queene Ascila his mother; as we learne by the Historiographers, Ammianus Marcellinus, Renatus Frigeridus, and S. Gregory of Tours, the most ancient French Annalist, in his second booke and ninth chapter of the History of France. Mellobaudes, King of the French, in the time of the Emperour Valentinian the first, who knowing the Valour of the said Mellobaudes, sought his friendship, and made him Consull of Rome with him, in the yeere of Grace, After Mellobaudes succeeded in the French Kingdome his Sonne.
Gonebaudes, King of the French in the time of the Emperour Valentinian the yonger, according as it is witnessed by that bright splendor of the Church, S. The said Genebaudes left two sonnes,. Paulinus, describing the life of S. Gregorie of Tours in their Histories. William the Breton, in the first Booke of his Philippides ; that is to say, the life of King Philip Augustus, called the Conqueror, and Gods-gift, saith Aqua Francigenae progressi cum Pharamundo Marcomirigena, quem iam genitor suus illis In regem dederat. The Reigne of Pharamond was foureteene yeares, for he dyed according to the learned Onuphrius, and other Authors before him in the yeare of Grace, foure hundred and thirtie: then being Consuls of Rome, the Emperour Theodosius the second, for the thirteenth time, and Valentinian, third of the name, the third time.
For Pharamond, and Clodion his sonne, neuer had their setled dwelling, in any other part, but in Thoringe or Thuringe. We haue formerly obserued, the like act done by Iulian the Apostata. Prosper of Aquitaine in his Chronicle, where hee saith. And then followeth,. No speech was made of the third estate, till after the Nobilitie had preferred Ignorance with Vertue, and made a Trophie of it. Pharamond did nothing, but added the 6. And heere you may see the Paragraphs of this Title. The Frenchman Homo Francus chancing to dye without an Heyre masle, the Father and Mother suruiuing, shall succeed in the Seigneury which he held.
If the Father and Mother are deceased before, and the defunct hath brothers and sisters left; the Brothers shall succeed in the said Seigneuries. And if there be neither Sisters by Father nor Mother, nor Brothers by Father nor Mother, at the day of the Franc-Mans death; the feodale succession shall belong to the very neerest kinsman of the Fathers side. But concerning lands conquered by the French Saliens, and wonne with the Sword: Women cannot succed in the totall, nor in the meanest part or portion of them; but they shall intirely appertaine to the masles, and from Lance to Lance, without falling vnto the Distaffe.
Nay moreouer, if the male of the Lords of Conquest were vncapable to make profession of Armes; by right of reuersion, those Lands returned to the Prince, who cythet kept them, or else inuested some other in them, by right of kissing his hand onely, or as his Liege-man.
This is that which Lampridius obserueth in the life of his Emperor Alexander. Women then, by the ancient Law of the French Salians, as also the Ribarols, the very neerest to the Rhine; succeeded by defect of Heyres masles in the Fiefs or Fees seated as well in Franconia, wonne without striking one blow as we haue already said before as in Sicambria.
It hath beene practised at all times, among the Nations of greatest fame, that women neuer had any command. Eumonius, King of Sparta dying, left his kingdome to his Sonne Polydectes, who deceased also without heyres masle liuing, onely hee had two daughters, so that by right his brother Lycurgus came to the kingdome. The Empire of the Romanes was neuer held, or commanded by Women. The Sacred Lillies of France neuer stouped to the Distaffe. The Lillies of the French field cannot be gathered by a Strangers hand, none but the Princes of the Bloud may haue any power ouer them. Gregory of Tours sheweth vs, that the daughters of Kings of the first line, were excluded from their succession, although deceasing without heyres masles, and their Paternall kindred preferred before them.
The married, and the two other daughters inherited not any part or portion of the heiredome of their Father; which was partaged or diuided by their paternall Vnkles, Sigibert King of Austrasia, and Chilpericke King of Soissons. He had not any apparance at all, why he should depriue his onely daughter of his Kingdome, if the Law thereof had not beene his hinderance. The Lillies of the sacred Field of France, cannot be gathered by a Strangers hand. Because he the said Charles was a stranger to France, and became a coniured enemy to the Kingdome, the rest and quiet whereof hee had many times troubled, taking part with the King of Alemaigne, capitall enemy to the French, and so the said Charles was published vncapable of entertaining the Crowne.
By sentence of the Generall Estates, pronounced by Messire Pierre d' Arablay, Cardinall and Chancellor of France, the said Dukes of Bourgongne, and Madame Agnes were frustrated in their opposition, and intercepted by their appeale, from the sacring of the said le Long, conformably to the Law of the Kingdome. After the death of the said Charles, his Cousine Philip de Valois came to the Crowne of France, whereto the Princes of the Blood are called, be they an hundred degrees off.
Eodem Anno the first day of February The donation made to the Church of Basile by the Emperor Charlemaigne. Behold most certaine and assured testimonies of the Salique Law, vnder Kings of the second Ligne: now let vs mount and ascend vp to the first. There needeth a delay or respit of three moneths, for such as dwell beyond the Loire, or the Forrest Charbonniere. Marculphus in the reigne of Dagobert Restorer and Founder of S. Denys in France had bin Audiencer in the Chancery of France very long time.
Landry, then Bishop of Paris, an exemption of the said Abbey of S. Denys, for him and his successors Bishops of Paris, which exemption continueth to this very day. Landry concerning the Chancery of France, which was vsed in his time according to the Salique Law. This is the same man. At the manner of weddings, N. In the frontispeece whereof is this Prologue: Haec sunt capitula quae gloriosissimus Carolus in Lege Salica, mittere praecepit. Now we come againe to Pharamond. To whom are giuen diuers Armes. Which is a deuise and no Armes, to shew that the French began to vnplume the poore Romane Eagle, by the conquest of the Gaules.
As willing thereby to signifie, that hee had three sundry Kingdomes and Prouinces: as namely, Franconia, Westphalia, and Holland on this side of the Rhine. And thence would deriue their flouting nick-name of French Toades, as figuring thereby the first dwelling of the ancient French, in the Fennes and Marishes so often before named. I haue seene neere to Bourdeaux, in the Abbey of S. Sorin, a remarkeable Tombe of Stone exalted vpon foure small Pillers aboue the ground.

And according to the example of King Francis, they did then weare their head-haire cut short, and their beards long. For commonly the Subiest doth conforme His fashions, as he sees his Princes worne. But returne wee to Clodian. In the yere But they were driuen to flight, with a great slaughter of them, which gaue him the meanes to possesse the Countries of the Charboniere Forrest, which comprehended then Tournay, Valentiennes, Monts and Cambray, pursuing still his purposed point, through the spacious fields of Artois; as Sidonius Apollinaris reporteth in the passage of the precedent Chapter.
Quintines, to Peronne, Amiens, Abbe-ville and S. Vallery, beneath which Somme runneth, and falleth impetuously into the lap of the Ocean Sea. Such then were the bounds of Clodions Conquests, according to the testimony of S. Gregory of Tours, in the end of his second Booke of the Historie of France. Clodion hauing reigned twenty yeares, or eighteene, according to some writers; dyed in the Castle of Disparch in Thuringe, and was carried to Franquemburge in Franconia, and laid in the Sepulcher of his Ancestors.
Saint Gregorie of Tours affirmeth, in his second Booke and ninth Chapter; that the said Meroueus was issued of the Blood Royall, and a very neere kinseman to the said King Clodion. And in truth, the Kings which held the Kingdome vnto Pepin le Bref Authour of the Kings of the second Ligne, called the Carlouingians descended from Father and Sonne to the said Meroueus: And therefore they called the ligne of their Kings, after this Meroueus, the Merouingians.
The same Belgicke Gaule was moreouer deuided by the same Romaines, into the first and second Germanies. The valiancie of this Prince, and the robberies of the Hunnes ; compelled the Emperours of the East to accord with him, concerning the Prouinces conquered by the deceased King Clodion, with charge of assistance. And on Easter eauen, being entred stoutly into the Citie of Mentz: after he had pilled and ransacked it, he consumed it into ashes, putting to the edge of the Sword the Inhabitants thereof; massacring inhumainely the Priests at the Altar. Geneuiesue, Patronesse of the Parisians.
Aignanus the Bishop, according as other Cities and Townes were, which he had desolated. Thus you see what S. Gregory of Tours saith, concerning the battaile won against Attila, King of the Hunnes. As for the place where it was fought, some say, that it was neere to the Citie of Tolosa in Lauragais. Others say, it was by the Towne of Chaalons in Champaigne, called Catalaunum, on the Plaine whereof is to be seene an Oratorie and Chappell, erected, to serue as a remembance thereof.
This Authour giueth all the praise and honor of this Battaile to the Gothes without any speech of the French in fauour of the Ostrogothes King of Italie, to whom he was a Courtier. And yet notwithstanding S. Saint Gregory of Tours noteth perticularly the place where the said Battaile was fought. For which there is a great deale more apparance and likelihood, then at Chaalons in Champaigne, and neere to Tolosa. It must be thought, that two such puissant Armies, could not be any long time without comming to handy-blowes, in the neere neighbouring fields of Orleans, which was the victors prize and Trophee.
To small purpose then did the Patrician. Aetius, after he had won the Battaile, aduise Thorismond, to retire in all haste to Tolosa, for preuention of his Brother; if the Battaile had bin fought neere to Tolosa. Attila with his Armie, consisting of fiue hundred thousand men, had already rauaged Alemagne and Franconia, pilled Tongres, and raced it from the top to the bottome, and burnt Treuers, without finding any soule to resist against him. At that time Merrueus betooke himselfe to guard the Gaules, and therefore prepared a great number of vessels in the Forrest of Hercynia : So say Panytes, and the Bishop of Auuegne.
Already had Belgicke Gaule serued as the Theater, whereon Attila made presentation of his bloody Tragedies, putting all to fire and sword: hauing sacked the Citie of Rheims, died red with the blood of the chiefest Inhabitants, and of their Bishop holy Nicasius, and of his sister Eutropia. As much hee would haue done to the Citie of Troyes, if the Prelate thereof had not with-held the blow: to goe and discharge his rage and barbarous furie on the Citie of Orleans, inuested with his whole Armie, and to be made desolate.
His part being so secured, the King of the French, Meroueus, and Theodrricke of the Vuisigothes, in this common cause, and each one to conserue his Conquest: tooke part with the Romaines, although they had bin sollicited to ioyne with Attila, who thought himselfe sure enough of their Armes. So saith Priscus Panytes. Freculphus, Bishop of Lysieux writeth in his Chronogtaphie, that at the siedge of Orleans, the Patrician Aetius, and the Kings of France and Aquitaine, Meroueus with his sonne Childericke; Theodoricke and Thorismond his sonne, gaue so rough a charge on the Armie of Attila, a braue and expert Captaine: that he iudged at the first blow of proofe he could not stay long without fight.
Which made him resolue vpon the Battaile, and which was hotly deliuered him, without any more vaine marching In Campis Catalaunicis. He preuailed in the like manner with the King of the Vuisigothes, Thierrie or Theodoricke, whose seate Royall was then at Tolosa ; which the Bishop of Auuergne, in the Panegyricke of the said Auitus. Valentinian, third of the name, so wrought in his youth fearing least Aetius should aspire to the Empire that he put him to death, without subiect or any occasion whatsoeuer.
But there are some, that being banquerout of honor; will willingly claw the head with their owne nailes, at the base name of a Cuckolde; to deriue benefit thereby, or else to cloude their owne weakenesse. Maximus pondering on the reuenge of his wiues honor, soyled by the lubricitie of Valentinian Princes, learne by other mens examples, to bridle and ouer-rule your vngouerned appetites gaue Valentinian aduise, to put to death the Patrician Actius: because it was whispered in his eares, that he would vsurpe the Empire of the West, and to that end had intelligence with barbarous Nations.
Valentinian, a yong Prince, followed the counsell of this Achitophell, without making proofe of his fidelity, or the vnfaithfulnesse of Actius, who neuer had conspired against him. He slew him with his owne hand, so saith Cassiodorus in his Chronicle, the yeare foure hundred fiftie and foure; the said Aetius being Consull of Rome created by Valentinian with Studius, named by Marcian Emperor of the East. In this manner Valentinian, bad councelled like to another Rehoboam by putting Aetius to death; did cut off his owne right hand from the left.
So at one time happened the death of Valentinian, and totall ruine of the West Empire. Marcellinus Comes writeth in his Chronicle, that the death of Aetius was the losse of the West Kingdome, in these tearmes.
Valentinian, being thus slaine, Maximus possessed himselfe of the Empire, and tooke to wife Eudoxia, the widdow of Valentinian ; creating as Constable and Colonell of his Infanterie, the Praefect of the Gaules Praetorium Auitus. As wee leame by the Bishop of Auuergne, in his Panegyricke spoken to the same Auitus. And he gaue him charge to worke a peace, firmely set downe for confirmation of the Lands, already conquered on the Romaine Empire by stranger Nations: Which he did, acquitting himselfe worthily in his charge, as well to Meroueus, King of the French, as to them of the Bourgongnons and Vuisigothes.
For Gensericus robbed and burned Rome, carrying her into Affrica, that called him to her helpe, with her two daughters Eudoxia and Placida ; as also the Treasure of the Westerne Emperors. As is written by S. After his death, the Empire was vacant ten moneths and fifteene dayes; next whom succeeded Maiorian. William the Breton, speaking of Clodion saith. Which caused him to leaue France, and withdraw for his owne safety to the King of Thuringe his kinsman, named Bissinus, with whom he remained eight whole yeares. This retreate of his happened according to the supputation of Sigibert in the yeare of Grace foure hundred threescore and one; the third yeare of his reigne.
So saith S. During this time the French, being vsed to liue at all times vnder gouernment of Kings, elected a Romaine Senator ouer them, named Count Gillonus, as much to say, as Gouernor of the Soissons, and of some other Townes, which the Romans yet held in Belgicke Gaule, and so farre as to the Riuer of Loire, as formerly hath bin reported to vs by S. Childericke returned into France, resolued on his better behauiour, in the yeare of Grace foure hundred sixtie and nine.
Who pressing her to tell him, what had induced her to leaue the King her husband; she made him this answere. That she was compelled thereto, by a certaine foreknowledge which she had of his valour, aboue all the Princes of his age, and that she complained not of her crossing the Sea, to seeke such a worthy man as he, who had not his equall in the world. And therefore, meerely moued by her owne good opinion of him, she had passed the Rhine, and made so long a voyage, onely to dwell with him. Childericke purposing to recouer his Kingdome, leuyed a potent Armie to make seizure of Gillonus, who kept himselfe sometime in his vsurpation, by assistance of the Vuisigothes, and vntill the yeare foure hundred threescore and fifteene.
At vbi S. Occurrences which daily continued, by the feruent prayers of that holy Virgin, vpon the most pressing necessities of the Realme of France and Paris her capitall Citie. So saith Saint Gregory of Tours, in his second Booke and eighteene Chapter; and possessed himselfe of those Isles, which make on the Riuer of Loire, and of the Villages belonging thereto, from Angiers, so farre as Orleans.
But in the heate of these proceedings, Gillonus being dead at Soissons, left there as his Successour his Sonne Syagrius, so that the expected succour wanted feete to come. By which meanes, Odouaricus and his followers made hauocke at their pleasure, all about the Towne of Angiers, compelling Count Paulus, and those of the Villages of the Riuer of Loire, to send him hostages.
This was done in the yeare of Grace foure hundred fourescore and one. Gregory of Tours in his Historie of France, the second Booke and three and thirtieth Chapter, hath a Tract very remarkeable, following in these words. Cumque odium de die in diem cresceret, iussum est vt clam gladio feriretur. This worthy man liued in the time of Meroueus, and of his Sonne Childericke. Because, saith hee, each Romaine Gouernour, would fley off the skinnes of his owne Nation, and eate them to the very bones.
Franci hoc scelus nesciunt. And in this surprizall, the Bishops Pallace was burued, as we learne by the said Gregory of Tours. This action before named, was performed by Childericke in the yeare of Grace foure hundred fourescore and one. At the end whereof the Patrician Ricemerus who had made him his Sonne in law sent him packing also after the rest: he being slaine in a foughten Battaile, which Ricemecus gaue to his Sonne in Law, the tenth day of Iuly, foure hundred threescore and twelue.
And in his sted, the same Orestes the first day of Nouember, the same yeare exalted to be Emperour his owne Sonne, named Momillus, he being very yong in yeares. C Louis, by the death of Childericke his Father, succeeded him in the Realme of France, at the age of fifteene yeares. And to doe him the greater honour, they named him the Solon, and Interpreter of their Lawes, whereat the Bishoppe of Auuergne made a mockerie.
So that he was constrained to shelter himselfe in the Court of Alaricus, King of the Vuisigothes, at Tolosa, to whom Clouis in all haste sent his most faithfull Counceller Aurelianus, to say boldly from him: that either hee must deliuer him his enemy, or else prepare for warre. Among others, they robbed one, wherein there was a Cuppe or Challice, of great and admirable worth, with the Casket and Ornaments thereto belonging.
Being come to Soisons, the whole bootie was laid in a heape together, and the King made his request to the troopes of Horsemen, in these tearmes: I pray you, O my braue and generous Warre-fellowes, that by way of right, and, as out of share, you would giue me this Cup pointing to that which the Bishop had sent to request of him.
All the bootie heere, and all our goods are yours, euen as iustly as our liues Most excellent King, full of all glorie dispose at your good pleasure of all that is heere before you; for it appertaineth not to vs, to doe any thing contrary to your Will. At the yeeres end, the King made a generall Muster of his Horse-troupes in the field of Mars, to see in what condition they were accoustred.
How happens this? So didst thou at Soissons the yeere past, vpon the Cuppe which was freely giuen me. The miserable wretch lying there dead, and iustly punished for his boldnesse: it serued as a lesson to the heads of Regiments, and a meet example for due obedience and honour to Princes, and after this was done, he dismissed his Armie. According as it came to passe 9. Particularly I say hee enriched that Church, in fauour of Saint Rhemigius, whom hee affected with a fatherly loue, heaping honour and wealth vpon him, because hee made him know the way to saluation, Baptizing and Sacring him.
For that Cup before remembred, Clouis gaue one of Siluer to the fore-said Saint Rhemigius, as hee wrote himselfe in his Testament. For he the same yeere ro wit, fourescore and seuenteene had managed the marriage of King Clouis his Master, with Clotilda, the Princesse of Bourgongne. Gombauld durst not vse any deniall; but hauing affianced her, after the ancient custome of the French, he brought her into the City of Soissons, where the marriage was solemnized with all magnificence.
So simply speaketh S Gregory of Tours, in his second booke and eight and twenty chapter; without specifying what was the ancient custome of Marriages obserued by the Gaules and French. Maides thus bought with the price of one Sol and one Denier the ancient custome whereof is yet still retained at Paris, on the wedding day, to giue to the wife thirteene peeces of gold or of siluer, or a thirteene penny-peece at the least is in the Salique Law called in the old French Language, that is to say, High Dutch, Druchies : At the fourteenth title De Rapt, or rauishment of maides, the tenth Paragraphe.
Denarios: qui faciunt solidos C C. This Sol, and this Denier of siluer, was giuen to the Father of the Maide, to the Vncle, or to her neerest Kinsman, to shew that she was bought. At the third. And for want of kinred in the said sixt degree, this Reippus belonged, and was payed to the Kings Houshold or Exchecquer; or to the Lord Feodall and Fee-farmer, and the Amercement before specified. Denys Marculphus.
Second marriage being alwaies exempted, especially on the Womans side, as branded with the crime of impudicity, or of lubricitie. She receiued her husband, to liue the rest of her life with him, as one and the same bodie, and one and the same life. Her thoughts had no further expectation after the death of her Spouse to combine againe a second marriage. They tooke as great delight, in nursing their children with their owne milke, as bringing them into the world. Also this was the reason, why the husband serued as a mirror and example to his wife, for making her modest.
Maides that had once made forfeit of their honor, and suffered the Cat to be ouer-freely familiar with the cheese, could neuer make their part good, were she neuer so gilded with gold, or graced with the excellency of beauty. Why, thus goes the World. That men laid downe in a masse or heape, so much mony as they receiued in marriage with their wiues; that the profit of the summe should be reserued, and remaine to the suruiuer of the two people married. And if they discerned in her any euill demeanour, after shee had endured all kindes of punishments and tortures, they would commit her to be burned aliue.
The Author of the prosecution or supply of S. In the fourth booke and ninth Title, the Ordenance speaketh thus. But especially if they had any issue, which by marriage were legitimate. And this name of Morganatica, is deriued of Morgangheba, mentioned in the said Ripuarie Law. This was the gift to buy pinnes withall, which the husband gaue to his wife, the morrow morning after the Nuptialls, as the price of her Virginity, and remembrance of their combined Alliance.
That the saide Kings gaue to their Spouses certaine Townes and Villages, to buy them pinnes and other pleasures, on the morrow morning after their wedding. And of further date by Iean Huges de Linscot, Hollander, and Francis Pyrard de Laual, a Frenchman; whereof Aimonius the Monke setteth downe the particularities, in his History of France, the first booke and third chapter. As one called Saturne, who saued himselfe with his Father that did eate his owne chilhren for feare they should be chased out of their dignity.
Another named Iupiter, what was he but a most infamous man, the lewdest of all that could be lewd? Addicted wholly to Sodomie, Incest, and Whoredome; without abstaining from the knowledge of his own sister, making his vaunt in the Poets, that she was his sister and his wife. Immediately was Clouis vp in Armes against his Wife, reproaching her God with impuisance, and that questionlesse the child had liued, if it had not beene vowed and consecrated to her God, whereas now it died by being baptized.

It can happen quoth he to his wife no otherwise with this childe, then it did with the other: for it being baptized in the name of your Iesus Christ, without all doubt it must needs dye. For I haue called vpon mine owne Gods, who are both dumbe and deafe, and I finde by proofe, that they are very farre off from mee, immooueable, and without vigour, to succour such as haue affiance in them. So say Beatus Rhenanus, and his Countrymen, in their histories of Alemaign, and Ioannes Auentinus, who describeth the particularities of this memorable day, in his Annales of Bauaria.
At these good tidings, the Queene sent for secretly into the Court, S. Libenter te, sanctissime Pater, audiam, said Clouis to S. Rhemigius hath preached to you. But S. Rhemigius gaue him this precept. Albofleda his sister was also baptized, who presently after passed out of this life into a better. Thus you see what as yet we haue obserued, of the Sacring and Baptism of King Clouis, which hapned on Easter euen, beginning the Secular yeere fiue hundred: according to the ancient Annalist, S. Gregory of Tours, in his History of France, the second booke, and one and thirty chapter.
These Kings, as well as their people and subiects were infected with the impious heresie of Arrius. These two Brethren being in contention, and at strife each with other, Godegisilus finding himselfe to be the weakest, and vnderstanding the victories of King Clouis ; sent his Ambassadors secretly, to require his assistance, and to call his brother King Gombauld, to an equall partition of the lands betweene them, or else to deriue such annuall tribute from them both, as hee should please to impose vpon them. These three Princes being in field, and comming neere to the Castle of Dijon; Clouis gaue offer of battell to Gombauld, who presently accepted it, thinking to be seconded by his brother.
This battell was fought in the yeere of Grace The French which were in Garrison at Vienna, kept themselues strongly within a Tower: but being narrowly pressed, yeelded vpon safety of their liues, Gombauld sending them in exile to Tolosa, the abiding of Alaricus, King of the Vuisigothes. The place of enterview was made choise of, in an Iland belonging to the Riuer of Loire, neere to the Towne of Amboise, in the Diocesse of Tours.
This enterview happened in the yeere of Grace, fiue hundred and sixe, according to the supputation of Sigibert. As he would haue passed the Riuer of Vienna with his Armie, he could by no possible meanes finde any Foord; which yet in the night-time was strangely shewne him. For he hauing spent the whole night in prayer; euen at the point of day, a goodly Hinde stood before him, and entring into the Riuer, serued as guide to him and the whole Armie, which passed ouer without encombrance:. Hillarie, and lighting directly vpon the Campe: which serued as an assured presage, that the hand of heauen was his Lanthorne and guide, to haue the vpper hand and victory ouer those Arrian heretiques.
The particularities of this famous battell, were the death of Alaricus, slaine by the hand of the chiefe of the contrary part; which the Romans expressed in these tearmes of Optima Spolia. But such was the goodnesse of his Cuirace, that it withstood the stroakes, and his horse being full of courage, carried him speedily out of the crowd. The most part of the Senators and Noblemen of Auuergne, conducted by Apollinaris, Gouernour of the Country, were put to the edge of the sword.
Also to besiege Carcossona, where the forces of the Ostrogothes King of Italie, named Theodoricke too, were, but hee dislodged them thence. In the meane while, Clouis wonne Gascoigne and Guienne, but chiefly Bourdeaux; whence he caused to be brought from Tolosa the capitall City belonging to the Kings of the Vuisigothes the treasures of Alaricus and his predecessors.
This battell of Vogledim was fought in the yeere of Grace, In this manner he set forward from the Pallace of S. Gregory of Tours, in his second booke, and He builded his Pallace on the Mount of Paris, vpon the olde foundation whereof was erected the Abbey house of S. Geneuiefue chose her buriall to be there, rather then in any other place. A qua Lance, saith Gregorie of Tours, in his third booke and first chapter.
Childebert, as eldest of his legitimate children, had to his lot and partage by preference, the City of Paris. As for Thierry, eldest sonne to Clouis but by his Concubine before marriage hee had that of Mentz, the Kingdome whereof contained the Duchie of Alemaigne beyond the Rhine, and some places on the hither side, with the homage of Bauaria.
This Realm was called Austrasia. He began with the descendants of Clodion, the sonne of Pharamond. The Prince being desirous to reigne, resolued to doe it, as hee did immediately after: for Sigibert being on a day gone forth of the Citie of Cologne, and past ouer the Rhine, to hunt in the forrest Boucane: As he reposed himselfe after dinner in his Tent or Pauillion, Childericke most inhumanely massacred him.
So soone as he sent newes of his Fathers death to Clouis, he also entreated him to send some of his trustiest followers, to take such portion of the defuncts treasures, as should stand with his owne liking, which accordingly he did. LIsten to mee good people. As I was rowed for my delight vpon the Riuer of Escauld, Chlodericke, sonne to my Cousin Sigibert your King, perswaded his Father, that I was desirous to haue him kill him. Which hee hauing fully setled in his braine, ouer-ruled him to part out of Cologne, and she for safety into the Forrest Boucone, where the said Chlodericke murdered his father.
There is not any likelihood or appearance. But seeing it hath thus come to passe, I would aduise you if so it might stand with your liking to choose me for your Prince, and commit your selues into my safeguard and protection. And so Clouis became enriched with the riches and kingdome of Sigibert. With whom he caused to keep company, Chararick or Ararick King of Haynauls, another kinsman of his.
And as Ararick grieued and complained of his hard fortune, his sonne, plucking himselfe by the small-increasing locks of his head, comforted him in this manner. Now, as Ragnacaire sent to discouer the forces of Clouis ; those men themselues, that had made marchandise of him, when hee desired to know the enemies number and condition: they payed him with his owne ordenarie words; They are not enow for you, and for your Pharao. Why hast thou bin such a base and contemptible villaine, to shame our Race, and suffer thy selfe to be taken, bound and manacled, as in this case thou art brought before me?
And, as he spake these words, he cleft his head in twaine with an Axe. As much he did to his Brother, reproching him, because he had giuen him no better assistance; but permitted him as also himselfe to be so basely bound, like to a thiefe and malefactor.
