Wonderful book on 15th c. coronation, and recommended: _The Coronation

of Richard III : the Extant Documents_, edited by Sutton and Hammond

(Gloucester: Alan Sutton; New York: St Martin's, 1983)

Unfortunately, it still sheds no light on the "mess of dilgirunt." And

neither does the OED.  The Richard III book talks also about whose

office it is to serve the dilgirunt[s?], but gives no futher details.
