  12. After acquiring the crown of thorns from Emperor Baldwin II of Constantinople, Louis IX of France sent two Dominican friars to bring the relic from Venice. In August that year, the friars arrived at Paris.

In that year, Felim complained in person to Henry III of his grievances against Richard de Burgo, justiciar of Ireland, who was taking over O'Connor lands in Connacht and bringing in Norman and Welsh settlers. The court of the justiciar was the supreme court of law in Ireland which, albeit liable to review from England, was virtually independent and showed only nominal adherence to the crown.
