Comes up besides Escremiz de Valterne,

A Saracen, and of that country lord.

Before Marsile among the throng he cries:

"To Ronceval I go, to crush the proud;

Nor shall Rollánd, if there, bear off his head,

Nor Olivier, chief of the other knights;

The twelve peers, all are doomed to perish there.

The French shall die, and France become a waste.

Of such good vassals Carle will see the loss."
