As it is preserved in only two manuscripts (Paris, Bibliothéque National, fr. 375; Cambridge, St. John College, B 9) the medieval French romance Guillaume d’Angleterre presents editors with a certain amount of difficulty, namely the production of a critical edition which is based on both manuscripts. This study examines a series of problematic sections of Ms. P and Ms. C, and estimates a few of the several blanks in which both manuscripts are consistently damaged. Moreover, the theory of the belonging of P and C to two distinct branches of the tradition could be reconsidered in consequence of the presence of many failures common to the whole tradition; indeed it is interesting to find elements that probably suggest the existence of a common archetype to the two families of manuscripts.
