52 THE LEGEND OF KING ARTHUR.
All Scotland then, throughe manly feates, I conquered with my hand.
Ireland, Denmarke, Norwaye,
These countryes wan I all; Iseland, Gotheland, and Swetheland ; ss
And made their kings my thrall.
I conquered all Gallya,
That now is called France ; And slew the hardye Froll in feild,
My honor to advance. <»
And the ugly gyant Dynabus,
Soe terrible to vewe, That in Saint Barnards mount did lye,
By force of armes I slew.
And Lucyus, the emperour of Rome, «s
I brought to deadly wracke ; And a thousand more of noble knightes
For feare did turne their backe.
Five kinges of Pavye I did kill
Amidst that bloody strife ; so
Besides the Grecian emperour,
Who alsoe lost his liffe.
