Quick Reference

A man of the same chivalric disposition as King Edward III of England (r. 1327–1377), Walter de Mauny became one of the king's closest comrades in arms. Mauny's modern-day fame is due in large part to the writings of the chronicler Jean Froissart, who also hailed from Hainaut (in present-day France and Belgium), who loved to relate the kind of brave personal exploits for which Mauny became renowned.
