Event: EmbassyGodwine 51.plea for peace

Scholarly Info
Description Godwine 51 sent again [to England] to ask for peace and mercy from the king [Edward 15], his lord, that he might with his permission come before him and lawfully purge himself. Also the king of the Franks [Henry 3], both for love of him and as in duty bound, asked through ambassadors for this; and the marquis of Flanders, [Baldwin 4], with whom Godwine 51 was overwintering, urged the same. But even they had little enough success when they suggested it, for the malice of evil men had shut up the merciful ears of the king.
