    • Patron of the Luttrell Psalter, which you should go look at right now.

      From the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography:

      Sir Geoffrey was not particularly prominent in a wider public context, though in 1298 he had been one of ten gentlemen travelling with the widowed countess of Lancaster, Blanche, former queen of Navarre, on her return to France. On some thirteen occasions between 1297 and 1319 he was called for military service and fought in the Scottish border wars. In 1324 he was included on a list of forty knights of the region summoned by the sheriff to attend a council at Westminster, though there is no record that he did so. In December 1325 he was named commissioner of array for Kesteven, though a deputy was soon appointed on account of his ill health. [...]

      Luttrell is chiefly remembered as the patron for whom the magnificent psalter which bears his name was written and illuminated in the second quarter of the fourteenth century. The book, quite clearly intended as a visual statement of family status, includes a miniature portraying him armed and on horseback, offered helmet, lance, and shield by his wife and daughter-in-law. All three are identified by their armorials. The work of the Luttrell psalter's principal illuminator, known only from this single manuscript, has a vigour and a sureness of characterization that sets it apart from the work of his contemporaries. His famous marginal illustrations of contemporary everyday life have been constantly reproduced for more than a century.
