A couple of corrections: 'Charles D Orleans' ought to be 'Charles d'Orleans' (there's an acute accent over the e in Orleans, but maybe that can't be done) He was not born in 1391 (heading) , but 1394 (second paragraph) . The duke of Orleans did not spend time in 'an English Jail' (second paragraph) , but he was 'shuttled from one English castle to another (sixth paragraph) . As a member of the French royal family, he was treated like a visiting prince. Various noblemen were given custody of the duke at various times, but he was never confined. In fact he did a good deal of travelling (always with a 'security escort') , often going to London.
