Henry I’s coronation charter, French translation (Hn cor Fr)
This Anglo-French translation of Henry I’s coronation charter of 1100 was prepared in the early thirteenth century, probably for the benefit of the baronial opposition to King John. It survives in a contemporary bilingual copy in a bifolium that also includes the Latin texts and Anglo-French translations of the coronation charters of Stephen (1135-54) and Henry II (1154-89).
- An edition by Richard Sharpe is forthcoming.
