It was built about the same time she was born, but it contains a more poignant link to her exploits. In the midst of one of the oldest unaltered floors in an English church is a five-foot-long grave slab. Borgue died in July , a month and a half after a much more contested death, as Joan of Arc burnt before a vast crowd in the market place at Rouen. By de la Pole was home, his purse considerably lighter after paying a crushing ransom, but he would have been a natural host for this now-Anglophile scion of the French royal house. Poor Sir Matthieu did not live to follow his master back to France and see Bourges once more, but he found an honourable and tranquil grave in East Anglia. And now England and France are also at peace; only the Isles de la Manche remind us that once the ancestors of Queen Elizabeth II ruled a kingdom spanning the Channel waters, a truly European power, whose centre might just as well have been Paris as Westminster.
