First I ask: So powerful man retains a banneret, or a banneret a knight, for a certain fee and for the season, and thus they are agreed; and afterwards they come to the city where the tourney has been proclaimed and arms displayed in the windows. So when the rich man or the banneret above comes without his banner and whole retinue, and another powerful man speaks to the banneret or knight above, suggesting he should be with him for a year; and the banneret, or the knight takes the offer. Then the powerful man who has retained him for a year goes to remove the banneret who is with the other and make him display his arms outside the windows with him. So is he able to do that by the law of arms for tourneys? What do you say?
