initiator: Baldwin III
text: Nov. 2. Acre. Baldwin, per gratiam dei in sancta Hierusalem Latinorum rex quartus, with the advice and agreement of his mother Queen Melisende, seals a peace treaty with the Pisans, who renounce all the claims on confiscated goods that they have brought against him and his homines, except for those relating to their honores that they are pursuing against the patriarch of Jerusalem, the clergy [clericatus] of Caesarea and the abbot and monks of St Mary of the Latins. The king, on his behalf and on that of his homines, renounces all claims and confiscations made against the Pisans. The Pisans promise to keep security and faith [salvum et fidum] with the king. They will protect him and his subjects homines by sea and land and will do their best to prevent other persons harming them. The king makes the same promise of security, protection and faith to the Pisans. King Baldwin excludes from this agreement the sale in Egypt of iron, wood, pitch, [pix] or arms, which can be confiscated without breaching the treaty. The king gives the Pisans a viscounty in Tyre, the holder of which can judge the Pisans in their own court [curia], reserving only to royal justice cases involving death sentences [traditio mortis]. He gives the Pisans 5 carrucate of good land next to Tyre and an oven in Tyre. He confirms King Baldwin II’s grant to the Pisans of 5 houses in the ruga next to the port of Tyre free of rent [tributum vel redditum] and freedom from taxes on their shipping [naves] and goods in the port, although pilgrims and other men (who are not Pisan merchants) would not be exempt. The goods of Pisans who died would not be subject to any restrictions or taxation. Baldwin wishes his brother Amalricus comes Ascalonitanus to make peace with the Pisans. Witnesses: Bertrannus de Blancaforti, militię Templi magister; Gaufridus Fulcherii frater Templi; frater Giraldus Hugonis preceptor Hospitalis; frater Guilielmus de Grosseto; Amalricus comes Ascalonitanus; Robertus de Porta; Rainaldus Falconarius. The charter was drawn up by Radulfus Bethlehemitę episcopus regisque cancellarius.
