With these preliminaries out of the way, what were the values espoused by those writing about the revolts of 1233–5? 1 The king used three overlapping lines of argument: he had been appointed as king, and should thus have the power of one; he had acted solely with the interests of the empire at heart; and his father had not only been unjust towards him, but had also frequently spurned his advice, and sought to undermine his authority as consecrated ruler of Germany. There seems to have been an awareness that Henry’s past activities might be held against him.

Roger of Wendover’s Flores Historiarum (Flowers of History) and Matthew Paris’ Chronica Majora (Major Chronicle) in particular, which amount to 2,500 and 3,000 pages respectively in their modern printed editions, far exceed anything German chroniclers produced. We thus have available a narrative of unparalleled richness and colour, which, in turn, allows us to ask questions which the sparseness and brevity of the German materials would make impossible to pose.
