An apologetic biography, to be precise.

Boucicault was a punk so there was a lot to apologize for. :roll: Aside from his success on the tournament field, he wasn't much use as captain, a military advisor (Nicopolis, Agincourt) or a military governor. (Genoa) He was born with good connections, had prowess at arms and was always in the forefront of adventure. That is certainly telling in how French medieval nobility appreciated renown.

I just noticed that there's now a more recent edition available at Google Books.

Came across this by chance - there is a mention of Boucicault on pages 95-95 of the 1589 print edition of Paulus Jovius - no mention of a duel, though
