I am Aubri de Baudrecourt, 14th Vidame de Vichery, 10th Baron et pair de Revigny and seigneur de Baudrecourt, Juvaincourt and Vaudoncourt. I was born in 1460 to a family that had been in service to the Comtes de Vaudemont since 1111. When Rene II, comte de Vaudemont became Duc de Lorraine, this placed the House of Lorraine-Vaudemont on a collision course with the much more powerful House of Valois-Bourgogne. Though some cousins supported Charles le Temeraire of Bourgogne, we stayed with the young Duc de Lorraine and we shared his triumph on the field of Nancy in 1477. For our loyalty we gained further lands in Bar and in central Lorraine.
We accompanied Rene on his many adventures in France, Lorraine and Italie (where he sought, without success, to recover the kingdom of Naples, the claim to which came down to him through his illustrious ancestor, good king Rene d'Anjou), In time Rene was called to his reward as the good steward of Lorraine by Our Heavenly Father and his son Antoine came to the ducal throne.
Antoine, raised in France with Francois d'Angouleme in the court of Louis XII, because of his friendship with the future King Francois, aligned our foreign policy with that of France. We marched off to war with the young king in 1515 and, in that year, I saw my last battlefield, that of Marignano. I remained at the side of my duke, fighting well into the night under the full moon, until chevalier de Bayard found us, far behind the main battle line and led us back to our camp.
On the the morning my son, Jean, led our Venetian allies onto the left flank of the Swiss and the tide of battle changed in our favor. In the wake of the battle the joyful young king provided for my son a county and he and my duke extended my holdings in Lorraine and Bar. Now, in my old age, I find repose in my estates in sunny Lorraine, reading an ancient Italian book concerning the use of knightly weapons that i found in Friuli. My days of adventure are done, such things being the realm of young men.
