[1] SERVI REGI.1

[2] Maiestati incumbit regie, ut in pace vivat populus, fideliter excubare.

[3] Sub tua potestate non pauci habitant, qui assiduo gaudent sanguine, crassatus odiis inter se discidia cottidie machinantes.

[4] Tue ergo sit cure inter eos pacem pristinam reformare. Si enim illorum parcis sceleri, forsan ad maiora poterunt evagari.


1 Serfs request the king that he install a peace between his warring vassals.
