    If that cup could have told its story, it would have been a strange one, for it had been made long since, in the old Roman times, and been carried off from Italy by some Northman pirate. Alberic overhears and volunteers to go and warn Count Bernard, who has been absent during the King's visit. How did Fru Astrida come up here? That ungrateful recreant, Herluin of Montreuil, came with the King, hoping, it seems, to get his share of our spoils; and when Bernard advised the King to send him home, since no true Norman could bear the sight of him, the hot-headed Franks vowed no Norman should hinder them from bringing whom they chose.

    Then he would have broken out in angry threats, but he felt his own helplessness, and was ashamed, and he could only shed tears of passionate grief, refusing all Carloman's attempts to comfort him. He died in October of the same year. Two or three large hounds were reposing in front of the hearth, and among them sat little Richard of Normandy, now smoothing down their broad silken ears; now tickling the large cushions of their feet with the end of one of Osmond's feathers; now fairly pulling open the eyes of one of the good-natured sleepy creatures, which only stretched its legs, and remonstrated with a sort of low groan, rather than a growl. Leave the child to me--he is only over-weary. The pilgrim had, however, the opportunity of picking up tidings which made him perceive the true state of things: he learnt the deaths of Sybald and Henry, the alliance between the King and Arnulf, and the restraint and harshness with which the Duke was treated; and with this intelligence he went in haste to Normandy. Even if we could draw our Normans together, we should not be more than a dozen men, and what could we do but die?

    But how is he to get out? The Faith of a King Time: the same Setting: the same Main events: Sir Eric warns Osmond during the night that King Louis plans to take Richard with him by force, making him a "ward of the crown" and thereby taking control over Normandy. I know he was right. Who is stopping my way? Oh, Fru Astrida, what shall I do?

The Little Duke book

Osmond de Centeville lay on the floor by his side, in the sound sleep of one overcome by long watching and weariness. The boys stood on the steps, wishing they were old enough to be warriors, and wondering what had become of him, until at length the sound of an opening door startled them, and there, in the low archway of the smithy, the red furnace glowing behind him, stood Osmond, clad in bright steel, the links of his hauberk reflecting the light, and on his helmet a pair of golden wings, while the same device adorned his long pointed kite-shaped shield.

I tell you it shall be the worse for you. He turned on his straw-filled crib, and looked up. Shall I bid him send a hostage?

The grand procession to Church was over. Do not you? Richard ran to the door to meet them, holding out his hand eagerly. Oh, Fru Astrida, what shall I do?

Opposite to her sat, sleeping in his chair, Sir Eric de Centeville; Osmond was on a low bench within the chimney corner, trimming and shaping with his knife some feathers of the wild goose, which were to fly in a different fashion from their former one, and serve, not to wing the flight of a harmless goose, but of a sharp arrow.

Thus they travelled until they reached the royal Castle of Laon, where the Fleur-de-Lys standard on the battlements announced the presence of Gerberge, Queen of France, and her two sons.

Richard was but a little boy, and he did not think so much of his loss, as he rode along in the free morning air, feeling himself a Prince at the head of his vassals, his banner displayed before him, and the people coming out wherever he passed to gaze on him, and call for blessings on his name.
