First sentence: "It is recorded, that PEPEN, King of France, had a fair sister named Bellifant, who was married to Alexander, the Emporer of Greece, and by him carried to his Capital at Constantinople; from whence after having lived with great virtue, she was banished through the means of a false accuser, whom she had severely checked for his imprudence; and though at the same time she was big with Child, yet she was compelled to leave her husband's empire, to the great regret of the people, attended only with a squire named Blandiman."
Gumuchian, cited below, dates as ca. 1780; Osborne dates as [1795?].
