The Chandos Herald

Alternative names

Biographical notes:

The poem was written by the Chandos Herald, the domestic Herald of Sir John Chandos, who was a devoted friend and follower of Edward the Black Prince. Little is known of the life of the author, except that he accompanied Sir John Chandos in some of his later military campaigns, and was therefore in the position of eyewitness to the events he describes. The poem was composed about 1385, nine years after the death of Edward.

From the guide to the Edward, Prince of Wales, the Black Prince, [1385], (Senate House Library, University of London)
