Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Book Preview: #1 Katherine Swynford, the famous adulteress, was placed in the household of Philippa of Hainault, wife to Edward III of England, at the age of two or thereabouts. She was a Hainaulter and may have had noble or even royal connections through her mother. #2 The arms of the town of Le Roeulx were a silver lion on a green field holding a wheel in its paw. This is a play on words, for wheel in French is roue, which is similar to, and symbolic of, Roeulx. It was a theme adopted by Paon de Roet's family. #3 Paon de Roët was a knight who came to England in 1327 in the train of Philippa of Hainault, who married the young King Edward III on 24 January 1328 in York Minster. He may have been present at the royal wedding, which took place in the as yet unroofed minster in the midst of a snowstorm. #4 Paon was a Guienne King of Arms, and he was probably appointed to this position in c. 1334 by Queen Philippa. He was loved by the Queen because he was her countryman, but he never came to greater prominence at the English court
