From the testimony of Jean Pasquerel on May 4, 1456
("...She then returned to the assault, shouting and saying, 'Glasdale,
Glasdale, submit, submit to the King of Heaven! You called
me a whore; [but] I have great pity for the souls of your people and yourself.'
Then Glasdale, armed from head to foot, fell into the
river Loire and was drowned; at which Jehanne, moved to pity,
began to weep for the soul of Glasdale and of the others who
drowned there in large numbers.")
