Transcript of The Man of Laws

By: Raddison Floresca & Neha Rawat The Man of Laws Direct: Judge in Court, highly knowledgeable & highly regarded, knew all convictions, common and crime (since King William's Time), rode in a medley coat, girded with a belt of silk with little bars, keen and wise, with great dignity, always busy Its 10am in the morning and the hosts asks the Man of Laws to tell a tale. Before telling the tale Poverty: The state or condition of having little or no money, goods, or means of support Characterization Indirect: Good at what he does (memorized every law, wrote contracts without flaws, very simple) Prologue There was a set of merchants traveling through Rome from Syria They saw a very beautiful girl. Her name was Constance. She was the emperor's daughter. When the merchants came back to Syria, they told the Sultan of Constance. However, the Roman Emperor wouldn't allow a Muslim to get with Constance. This is when the Sultan made plans to get Constance for himself. When the Roman Emperor heard of the Sultan's plan, he decided to have his daughter marry the Sultan. As Constance would be coming down with Christians to Syria, the Sultan's mom would be planning on having him, his people, and the Christians killed for she didn't want to break the Islam law. Every one of the christians were knifed, but only Constance had survived. The sultanesse's men had put her in a ship and she'd sailed by herself to Italy.
later, her ship had crashed in Northumberland and met lady Hermengyld and her husband. She secretly converted Hermengyld to Christianity. A young knight fell in love with her, however she'd rejected him. He took revenge upon her and killed Hermengyld who was sleeping beside her. He left the knife next to Constance and blamed Constance for the murder. The King, Alla, made the knight swear that Constance had killed Hermengyld. The knight swore on it that she was guilty. His had was struck down and his eye popping out of his face. It was a miracle! The king and many others were converted to Christianity . The king and Constance got married, but his mother opposed the marriage. They had a son named Mauricius. While the king was fighting in Scotland, Constance gave the letter to the messenger about her son. Later that night, the mother-in-law had changed the letter that his son was wicked, but the king had responded with love and kindness. Donegild (mother-in-law) replaced his letter with an order to banish Constance and her son with the same boat. Alla returned home, and killed his mother. Constance was found by the Roman Senator that was in charge of the army that raided Syria and went to Rome with her son. Constance and Mauricius settled in Rome for awhile. Alla soon came to Rome to ask for forgiveness for killing his mom. He soon met up with Mauricius during a feast then Constance. Alla explained to Constance that the banishment was the doing of his mom and not his own. They both made up with each other. The Emperor soon met with the whole family later in the feast he invited Alla to. Constance revealed herself to her father and explained what she had to go through for many years. Mauricius became the new emperor of Rome, crowned by the Pope. Alla and Constance went back to England ruling the country together. One year later, Alla died. Constance went back to Rome where she had been born. Her adventures had ended and joins her father for the rest of her life. http://www.gradesaver.com/the-canterbury-tales/study-guide/section6/
