Origin Edit

Jean II Le Maingre (in Old French, Jehan le Meingre), called Boucicaut (August 28, 1366 — June 21, 1421) was marshal of France and a knight renowned for his military skill. Boucicaut was admired for his courtliness and physical strength. It was said he could scale a tall ladder with his hands only while wearing full armor. At the Tournament of St. Inglevert in 1390, he victoriously jousted with two dozen knights from four countries, and he furthered his reputation for old school chivalry by founding the Order of the White Lady (1399) to protect the honor of wives and daughters of absent nobles.

In the Battle of Agincourt in 1415 he commanded the French vanguard, but was captured by the English and died six years later in Yorkshire. He was buried in the cathedral of Tours, in his family's chapel, with the epitaph "Grand Constable of the Emperor and of the Empire of Constantinople."

Effects Edit

Wearing the gauntlets enhances the user's strength in their arms and hands, allowing them to carry heavy loads and inflict impressive blows.

Trivia Edit

  • Interestingly, this artifact was used by Oto Barry to combat someone wielding Thomas Erpingham's Marshal Baton, which belonged to an English knight (the opponents of the French) in the Battle of Agincourt.
