About Jean d'Armagnac, comte de Comminges
Jean de Lescun d'Armagnac (? † 1473), known as “the bastard of Armagnac”, was an ally of king Louis XI of France from before his ascension to the throne.
He was the illegitimate son of Arnaud Guillaume of Lescun, Bishop of Aire, and Anne of Armagnac. He was made Marshal of France in 1461. He was one of four men to hold this title under Louis XI. Lescun was also made Count of Comminges / comte de Comminges.
He was named seneschal of Valentinois, then governor of Guyenne “in consideration that, in the great need of the King, he had left behind his parents, friends, goods and all heritages which he had in Gascogne to follow him and to accompany him”.
In 1465, Jean married Marguerite di Saluzzo (died after 1478).
In 1469 he became one of the first knights in the Order of Saint Michael and died in 1473.
