Chapter Summary

This chapter describes King Amaury's 1169 embassy to the Western princes in response to the growing power of Nur al-Din and the threat posed by Saladin's control of Egypt. The RHC edition (Chapter 20.12; Huygens also labeled it 20.12) contains an addition relating to a certain Huitace described as 'dean of Charmentré'. Ost and Pryor identified this figure as being associated with the translator due to him being the subject of two additions to the Eracles text. Huitace does not appear in the Paris edition of the chapter, although Paris did note that the RHC edition had included this reference. While the addition of Huitace is limited to a single manuscript, the addition of the burial place of John, the bishop of Banyas, is found in nearly all of the manuscripts. There are other variants in the chapter that seem to divide four manuscripts from F70 and F72.
