    21. 21. DefinitionWhat is the Forest of the King, and what the reason of thisname?M. The forest of the king is the safe dwelling-place of wildbeasts; not of every kind, but of the kinds that live in woodsD. Is there a forest of the king in each county?M. No; but only in the wooded ones, where the wild beasts canhave their lairs and ripe nourishment: nor does it matter to whomthe woods belong, whether to the king, or to the nobles of thekingdom, the wild beasts can none the less run aroundeverywhere free and unharmed. Dialogue of the Exchequer, 1179http://avalon.law.yale.edu/medieval/excheq.asp
