Caption: William I and William II, (Whole folio) Funeral of William I in the Abbaye aux Hommes at Caen. Two rows of mourners holding candles stand beside the coffin which is covered with the arms of England. A man forbids the obsequies, claiming the abbey stood on ground wrongfully seized from him by William. In background, two altars with officiating priests, and a cloister in which a monk is walking. On right; William Rufus kneels and is crowned by Archbishop Lanfranc, seated beneath a green canopy; a group of men witness the ceremony. Text, with decorated initial 'A' Image taken from Chronique de Normandie. Originally published in France Rouen; 2nd half of 15th century.
