93

The enemies very far from the fort, The bastion brought by wagons: Above the walls of Bourges crumbled, When Hercules the Macedonian will strike.

94

Weak galleys will be joined together, False enemies the strongest on the rampart: Weak ones assailed Bratislava trembles, LЭbeck and Meissen will take the barbarian side.

95

The newly made one will lead the army, Almost cut off up to near the bank: Help from the Milanais elite straining, The Duke deprived of his eyes in Milan in an iron cage.

96

The army denied entry to the city, The Duke will enter through persuasion: The army led secretly to the weak gates, They will put it to fire and sword, effusion of blood.
