Slashtacular.

"Reis Glorios", medieval 'alba' or dawn song. From a random linguistic standpoint, this looks to be from fairly near the divergence of French and Breton.

Reis glorios, verai lums e clartatz,
Deus poderos, senher, si a vos platz,
Al meu companh sias fizels aiuda,
Qu'eu non la vi pos la noitz ton venguda,
Et ades sera l'alba.


Glorious king, true light and clarity,
God Almighty, Lord, if it pleases Thee,
To my companion be a faithful aide,
For I have not seen him since night fell,
And soon it will be dawn.


Okay, perhaps not so slashtacular as all that, but you know what they said about Richard Coeur-Lion...
