Jean de Dunois
He joined the civil war in France in the time of Charles VI on the side of the Armagnacs, and was captured by the Burgundians in 1418. Released in 1420, he entered the service of the Dauphin Charles, fighting in the Hundred Years War against English forces. Dunois, together with Joan of Arc, relieved the siege of Orléans and went on to further victories. They succeeded in capturing Reims, which enabled Charles to be crowned as Charles VII of France.
He went on to distinguish himself further in battle after the death of Joan of Arc.
