  • Notes 
    • Master of the Household for John, Duke of Bedford. Governor of Anjou and Maine. Warden of the Bastille in 1421, while the English occupied Paris.

      "Sir John Fastolf KG […] was a late medieval English landowner and knight who fought in the Hundred Years' War. He has enjoyed a more lasting reputation as the prototype, in some part, of Shakespeare's character Sir John Falstaff. Many historians argue, however, that he deserves to be famous in his own right, not only as a soldier, but as a patron of literature, a writer on strategy and perhaps as an early industrialist."
