Today marks the anniversary of the death of Jean de Grailly, the Captal de Buch, famous hero knight of Gascony in service to King Edward III of England. There is much to be said of this man, cousin to Gaston Phoebus, Count of Foix, especial
ly of his military success. He led a successful Anglo Gascon cavalry charge at Poitiers and with his cousin Gaston Pheobus defeated a force of 9000 rebels with only 140 men at Meaux to protect the ladies of the town from marauding Jacques. He died a captive of the French king who refused to ransom his release because of his skill as a warrior and commander. It is believed he died in a coma brought on from depression and starvation.

Back from Pilgramage

Here we are folks, 2012! I'm feeling great. It has been a while now since my last blog, almost a year in fact and I am here with good news. The next episode of ATM is preparing for recording and will be in your ears in the next few days! In anticipation of this yearly event you might like to check out some of my websites:

All Things Medieval Facebook Page

The Sir Justyn Facebook Page

The new Sir Justyn Website

This is the best way to keep up to date with all my goings on and of course this blog is as well. The forums are no more thanks to an Ottoman like invasion of their expanses from the dreaded spammers.

I am also aware that some of the older episodes are no longer working for some weird reason and I am trying to find out why and reestablish their links. So thanks all for sticking around and keeping the home fires burning for me. By the Saints, it feels good to be back!
