L'Entrée à Constantinople [entrance to Constantinople]

Quand les croisés entrèrent dans Constantinople à la lueur des flammes, le bruit de leurs trompettes fut couvert par les cris éplorés des habitants qui venaient se jeter aux pieds de leurs vainqueurs. [When the crusaders entered Constantinople in the glow of the flames, the sound of their trumpets was muffled by the bereaved cries of the people who threw themselves at the feet of their conquerors.]
