  3. Viriville: Godefroy: ils jouissoient.
  4. Viriville: Godefroy: pouvoit. Dans tout ce passage le texte de Godefoy donne le temps imparfait au lieu du présent. Voir, sur ce sujet, la notice de Jean Chartier.

  6. Viriville: Godefroy: favoured.
  7. Viriville: Godefroy: they enjoyed.

Notes

  1. Saint Denis, 3rd century martyr of the Decian persecution
  2. Charles VII, king of France 1422 – 1461 (de facto 1436 – 1461).
  3. Henry VI, king of England 1422 – 1461, 1470 – 1471. His claim to the throne derives from his father, Henry V, who inherited the kingdom of France via the disputed Treaty of Troyes in 1420.
  4. Philippe II the Bold, duke of Burgundy 1419 – 1463. His father was murdered by the future king Charles in 1419, for which Philippe allied against him with the English.
