How about being a bit more specific Baiko?

I know a little about him. That he served Henry, the Young King, and after his death various membes of his family however it was that Henry that he truly loved. I know he was a great knight, both honourable and considered the greatest fighter of the era. I know he briefly took part in the crusades in repentance for a raid that Henry led before his death before coming back to seve Henry's father.

As I said if you can be a bit more specific I might be more use :P.

Henry the Older king felt that tournaments were wasteful, extravegant and often led to bad blood. Thus he out-lawed them so Marshall didn't fight any until he became Henry the Young King's sworn man and they toured France. In France they became the 'ultimate team' and won lots of money (that Henry squandered on women, jewels and luxuries). I think Marshall won every tournament they entered. Following Henry The Younger's death he retired from tournies and only fought seriously.
