Jehan de Quesnes


"Argent with a gules cross fretted or"




         A knight of the nobility of Picardy, Jehan de Quesnes is the third son of the viscount Robert de Poix. As he isn't the first heir to the viscounty, Jehan de Quesnes chose the life of the man-at-arms. A veteran of the Prussian crusade of 1389 and many other campaigns, he is a very old friend of Gallois de Fougières. When the latter is named provost marshal, Jehan decides to stand by him. He finally accompanies him to the battle of Azincourt on the 25th of october 1415, for his last battle against the English where he is killed.
