Rev. NEW STARES IN WAPPIN HIS HALF PENY. 1668.
The recorded miracle of the transmission of the Us, or lily, from heaven to Clovis, the first Christian king of France, may be traced to Louis the Seventh's reception of a consecrated flower from Pope Alexander the Third. Louis, who is sometimes called Ludovicus Florus, bore on his signet a fleur-de-lis, but probably assumed it in allusion to his name, then usually spelt Loys ; one of the earliest instances of the punning device, and whence France was poetically termed I 'Empire des Lis.
