Because Hrothwaru 1 was too young, the charter was given to her mother, [Anonymous 437]. Later when Hrothwaru 1 asked for the charter Anonymous 437 said it was lost. The matter was then debated by a sacerdotal council which decreed that the monastery should return to Hrothwaru 1 and then revert to Worcester 1 as Dunne 1 had intended.
