Note 106
From Chapter 59 of the Decline & Fall

See Carte's History of England, vol. ii. p.165 -175, and his original authors, Thomas Wikes and Walter Hemingford (l. iii. c. 34, 35), in Gale's Collection (tom. ii. p. 97, 589 - 592). They are both ignorant of the princess Eleanor's piety in sucking the poisoned wound, and saving her husband at the risk of her own life.
