That which his predecessors had pledged
Since that the ring they will not understand,

Under Cancer calamitous war:
Shortly after a new king will be anointed,
One who for a long time will pacify the earth.

Will put in trouble the army in quarrels,
The chief murdered for his support,
The Sceptre will bring calm: then will cure the king's evil.

To a small place which will soon come to increase:
Very tiny and cramped place for a County (county- shire?),
In the middle of which he will come to place his Sceptre.

Will come to pray for peace in Italy:
To his left hand he will transfer the Sceptre,
From a king, he will become an Emperor of peace.

Before the cycle of Latona (Moon) is completed:
Fire, great flood and more through ignorant Sceptres,
That will not be seen restored for a long time.

Never, not ever was there a more odious and cruel being,
For their wives, the black one will banish to death.
