quod et sponsa hec tenerior esset et nobilior, et cognatus tam speciosus accederet.

since this bride was more delicate and of nobler breeding, and had so fine a kinsman into the bargain.


"For she is fairer," as they deemen alle,
"Than is Grisilde, and moore tendre of age,
And fairer fruyt bitwene hem sholde falle,
And moore plesant for hir heigh lynage."
Hir brother eek so faire was of visage,
That hem to seen the peple hath caught plesaunce,
Commendynge now the markys governaunce.
