    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.

Rondel

Strengthen, my Love, this castle of my heart,
And with some store of pleasure give me aid,
For Jealousy, with all them of his part,
Strong siege about the weary tower has laid.
Nay, if to break his bands thou art afraid,
Too weak to make his cruel force depart,
Strengthen at least this castle of my heart,
And with some store of pleasure give me aid.
Nay, let not Jealousy, for all his art
