Supplementary documents1

1. James II, king of Aragon, to Charles de Valois. Valencia, 7 December 1324.

Inclito suo karissimo consanguineo Karolo, illustris bone memorie Francie regis filio, Vallesii, Alancionis, Andegavie Carnotique comiti, Jacobus, Dei gracia rex Aragonie etc., salutem et cum sincere dileccionis affectu votive felicitatis augmentum. Licet pro quibus scribimus sciamus certitudinarie omni prorsus veritate carere, ea tamen ad vos ut ad karissimum consanguineum et intimum nobis amicum providimus defferenda. Sciat igitur vestra serenitas auditibus nostris noviter advenisse, insonuisse verba et dum eratis in obsidione Reule vobis et aliis suggesta fuisse nos pacciones et federa contraxisse cum illustri principe Anglie rege adversus principem excellentem, communem consanguineum, Karolum, Francie et Navarre regem, de quo quidem tanto amplius admirandi causam suscepimus quanto scimus ex linguis adulatricibus vel zizaniam seminare conantibus contra omnem veritatem esse prolata. Absit autem a nobis quod nos, qui dictum Francie regem et domum suam atque honores expresse diligimus, cum quo tam naturalibus nexibus et sinceris dileccionibus copulamur ipseque nobis, contra eum consentiremus quicquid contrarii vel offense, set pocius ageremus queque sibi utilia atque grata. Et ubi cum aliquo principum orbis terre nos federa talia inire contingeret, intendimus quod cum ipso Francie rege et sua domo ea pocius quam alio contrahere deberemus. Quinimmo eciam extat verum quod, cum non est diu nuncii dicti Anglie regis super tractatu matrimonii primogeniti sui et filie nostre ad nostram presenciam advenissent, in quorum tractatu de generali confederacione querebant, nos, intendentes quod, licet generaliter confederacionem peterent supradictam, eam tamen adversus dictum regem Francie postulabant, illam denegavimus et expresse repulimus nec super hoc aut aliis extitit inter nos et illos in aliquo concordatum. Sicque a nobis ipsi nuncii recesserunt. Vos autem, sicuti magne discrecioni vestre videbitur, cum prescripto rege Francie colloquamini, ne talibus vel similibus credulas aures prestet. Et quia scimus animum vestrum renovari ad gaudium quociens de nobis letos rumores suscipitis, serenitati vestre presentibus intimamus nos cum tota domo nostra per Dei graciam votiva sospitate vigere, de statu vestro audire simile jugiter affectantes, de quo nos sepius placeat informare. Datum Valencie vijo idus Decembris, anno predicto [Mo CCCo xxo quarto].

The documents included in this appendix were found after the volume had already been set in type. I am indebted to Professor G. Barraclough for supplying me with photographs of documents concerning England, which he found in the Archives of the Crown of Aragon, at Barcelona; only the most illustrative of them are printed here.
