The passage corresponding most closely to this prophecy in Henry of Huntingdon's chronicle occurs in Book VI c.1, where `A certain man of God, too, proclaimed to them that [for their sins] an unforseen lordship would come upon them from France. This would for ever suppress their pre-eminence and would scatter their honour to the winds, never to be recovered. He also predicted that not only that people, but also the Scots, whom they considered to be most vile, would lord it over them to their well-merited confusion ...'. D.E. Greenway (ed.), Historia Anglorum: The history of the English people (Oxford, 1996), 338-41.
