W 56

56.  Charny asks:   Men at arms ride out and encounter each other and fight.   One of the men at arms in one party strikes his spurs to save himself, and three of the other side pursue him.   The first stops him with the bridle, and he does not want to surrender to him.   The second takes him by the head and holds a knife at his throat, and again he does not wish to surrender to him.   The third comes after and tells him to surrender to him, and that man at arms surrenders himself to the third.  When in the evening each of the three uses all the good arguments he knows, and there are plenty, that this prisoner ought to belong to him.   Who will have him, and how will it be judged by the law of arms?
