Chapter Summary

The anonymous continuator of the Chanson captured a poignant moment well. Dalmau had fled the battle, and, as King James would later recall, not just Dalmau but many others besides had fled, including from Catalonia, Hug de Mataplana, Guillem dHorta and Berenguer de Castellbisbal. The battle of Muret, as we have seen, was not just a minor incident, not simply the result of the over ambition of a charismatic but unwise king, but rather a dramatic and significant moment in the history of a relationship between the lands of southern France and north-eastern Spain which had evolved over many centuries, and which had seen a significant build-up of the political power of the house of Barcelona during the eleventh and twelfth centuries.
