CAP. XXVII.

Aluilda.                                         OCCASIONE præcedentis capituli XVIII. atrocem
                                        piraticam exercere cœpit Aluilda illustrissima virgo: compluribusque
                                        eiusdem voti puellis in commilitium accitis,
                                        eo forte loci pervenit, vbi piratarum agmen amissi bello
                                        ducis interitum deplorabat: a quibus ob formæ pulchritudinem,
