in consequence of the missive, Matilda or Isabella..., penned by Robbin
First came two harbingers with wands. Next, a herald,followed by two pages and two trumpets. Then an hundred foot-guards. These were attended by pets. And after them fifty footmen, clothed in scsarlet and black, the colours of the knight. Then a led horse. Two heards on each side of a gentleman on horseback bearing a banner with the arms of Vicenza and Otranto........
Reminds me of the thousands of terra cotta soldiers found buried a few miles from the tomb of a Chinese emperor. I saw those and the numbers of them remind me of these soldiers in Otranto. Could they have really done that?
