  Lake Victoria - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The first recorded information about Lake Victoria comes from Arab traders plying the inland routes in search of gold, ivory, slaves and other precious commodities.
An excellent map known as the Al Adrisi map dated from the 1160s, clearly depicts an accurate representation of Lake Victoria, and attributes it as being the source of the Nile.
The lake was first sighted by Europeans in 1858 when the British explorer John Hanning Speke reached its southern shore whilst on his journey with Richard Francis Burton to seek the source of the Nile for strategic reasons of the British Colonial administration.

 Haskins Society Web Page -- Anglo-Norman Anonymous 17.1   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Between 1157 and 1164 he was custodian of the castle of St. Briavels in the Forest of Dean along the southern end of the Marches and two years later he was custodian of Overton Castle and another castle in the Welsh district of Edeyrnion in the northern Marches.
During the 1160s the two brothers received many payments for garrisoning and supplying border fortresses and especially for transport of grain to the Marches.
The pattern of Pipe Roll payments to both men following Henry II's abortive campaign into northern Wales from Shropshire in the summer of 1165 suggests that they were both heavily involved in the execution of this effort.

 Roman Emperors DIR Manuel I Comnenus
The playing off of Manuel against Frederick continued right up until 1177, the Peace of Venice, whereby Frederick agreed to recognise Pope Alexander, the autonomy of Sicily and of the northern Italian communes.
But this result was not a foregone conclusion in the 1160s and early 1170s, and Manuel used Byzantine gold to win supporters in Italy and thereby keep Frederick occupied.
Manuel marched out to Tarsus in 1158 and prevailed over the Rupenid prince Thoros, who had reconquered the greater part of Cilicia, although Thoros sought refuge in the mountains.
