XIII "My Lords Barons," says the Emperour then, Charles,
you seem to hold back the passage preceding your quote:

Richard the old, and his nephew Henry,
From Gascony the proof Count Acolin,
Tedbald of Reims and Milun his cousin:
With him there were Gerers, also Gerin,
175 And among them the Count Rollant came in,
And Oliver, so proof and so gentil.
Franks out of France, a thousand chivalry;
Guenes came there, that wrought the treachery.
Names Council then began, which ended ill.
