    Notes 
    • Philippe II, king of France, widower of Isabelle of Flanders, wanted tomake friends with the king of Denmark by marrying his daugther,Ingeborg. But the Danes were then very backward in culture and learningand poor Ingeborg was a dull, ignorant girl, not at all like a courtlylady. Philippe took such a dislike to her that he sent her into aconvent and instead married the beautiful Agnès of Meran. Pope InnocentIII espoused the cause of Ingeborg and eventually put the kingdom underan interdict. He threatened to forbid any service to go on in any churchexcept in those of the monks and nuns, and there only with the doorsshut against all outsiders. The whole nation was going to be cut offfrom God because of the monarch's sin. Philippe pretended to agree to aseparation from Agnes. In fact, he did not turn her away and Ingeborgwas imprisoned. Agnes died in 1201, and her children by Philippe werelegitimised by the Pope.
