  • Notes 
    • seigneur de Tonnay-Charente
    • succeeded his father as vicomte de Rochechouart, seigneur de Tonnay-Charente,
      chamberlain to Charles VI
      seneschal of Poitou.
    • survived the Battle of Agincourt
    • On 12 Feb 1429, Sir John Falstolf (Falstaff) was taking a supply convoy to Orléans, when it was attacked by a French army with a small Scottish contingent. Falstolf had about 1000 mounted archers and a small force of men-at-arms, the French more than double that number. The French attacked the wagons, which had formed into a circle. The English beat off repeated French attacks, then counter-attacked, routing the French. The name of the battle derives from the fact that herrings made up a large part of the English supplies. Sir John, through the medium of Shakespeare, was perhaps unfairly cast as coward and villain.
