Note 088
From Chapter 56 of the Decline & Fall

The royalty of Robert, either promised or bestowed by the pope (Anna, l. i. p. 32), is sufficiently confirmed by the Apulian (l. iv. p. 270.).

Romani regni sibi promisisse coronam Papa ferebatur.

Nor can I understand why Gretser, and the other papal advocates, should be displeased with this new instance of apostolic jurisdiction.
