But in an instant, when the Germans burst in impious onset athwart his realm, his sword flashed from its scabbard and, deaf to the invaders' promises, as he had been deaf to their threats, he gave battle, heeding not the number of his foes, determined never to lay down arms till the right was vindicated.
