Note
Chronicle of Richard of Devizes, concerning the deeds of King Richard the First, king of England [tr. by J. A. Giles] - Geoffrey de Vinsauf's chronicle of Richard of First's Crusade. -Lord de Joinbelle's Memoirs of Louis IX, king of France, commonly called Saint Louis [tr. by Thomas Johnes] -Appendix to Joinville. List of the knights who accompanied Saint Louis to Palestine. Knights of the household who accompanied him to Tunis. Extracts from an Arabian ms., by Al Makrisi, containing the Saracenic account of the Crusade under St. Louis. -Index.

The chronicle here attributed to Geoffrey de Vinsauf is now shown to be, in large part, a Latin translation of Ambrose's L'estoire de la guerre sainte, probably made by Richard, canon and prior of Holy Trinity, London, about 1200. cf. Gross, Sources and literature of English history.
