As far as possible the game reproduces the system of swordsmanship from a manuscript written around 1410, Il Fior di Battaglia (The Flower of Battle), by an Italian master, Fiore dei Liberi. All of the terminology, and most of the specific rules, are derived from that book. Jean Le Maingre II (1366-1421), known as Boucicaut, was a famous knight, a Marshal of France, and lead the vanguard of French knights at the battle of Agincourt in 1415, where he was captured. He fought two duels with Galeazzo da Mantoa: in Padua, in 1395, and in Genoa in 1406. Unfortunately, Galeazzo was a student of Fiore himself--and won both duels. Let’s see if you can change history!
