The life of the Chevalier Bayard
by Simms, William Gilmore, 1806-1870

this is a biography of a most interesting histoical person:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pierre_Terrail,_seigneur_de_Bayard
Pierre Terrail, seigneur de Bayard (1473 – 30 April 1524) was a French soldier, generally known as the Chevalier de Bayard. Throughout the centuries since his death, he has been known as "the knight without fear and beyond reproach" (le chevalier sans peur et sans reproche). He himself however, preferred the name given him by his contemporaries for his gaiety and kindness, "le bon chevalier", or "the good knight".
