CHAPTER II
TWELFTH AND THIRTEENTH CENTURIES - THE NORMAN-ENGLISH PERIOD

to an end in 1154. The Ormulum, the Ancren Riwle, and the Brut all belong to the early part of the thirteenth century. They are English in their feeling ; but as the years passed, French romances were sung throughout the land-- in French where French was understood, in F.nglish translation elsewhere. One of the best liked of these was King Horn. Its story is :
The kingdom of Horn's father is invaded by the Saracens, who kill the father and put Horn and his companions to sea. King Aylmar receives them, and orders them to be taught after various duties. Of Horn he says :

King Aylmar presents a most eligible king as his daughter's suitor ; Horn's false friend tries to win her ; she is shut up in an island castle ; but Horn, in the disguise of a pilgrim, makes his way into the castle and wins his Rymenhild. He kills his false friend ; he finds that his mother still lives ; he regains his father's kingdom ; and so the
