  • Notes 
    • "Old Talbot." Lord Strange of Blackmere. Count of Clermont, Marshal of France, Constable of Ireland, Privy councillor 1422 and 1443, Lord Justice of Ireland, and many other titles. Noted as the only Constable of France appointed by a king of England. Summoned to Parliament by writs, 26 Oct 1409 and after.

      Created Earl of Shrewsbury 20 May 1442. Created Earl of Waterford 17 Jul 1446.

      He was a major military commander of the Hundred Years' War, and was killed on the field at the Battle of Castillon, considered the last battle of that conflict. A monument to him was raised by the French generals who defeated him. His death in battle is portrayed in a painting by Charles-Philippe Larivière.

      He spent four years a prisoner in France, after Joan of Arc stopped his string of successes there at the battle of Pattay, 1429.

      He appears in Shakespeare's Henry IV, Part 1 as "valiant Lord Talbot, Earl of Shrewsbury, Created, for his rare success in arms."
