Madame quickly orders her puppet to take up the challenge, and he obeys without vacillation. Loisselench turns out to be a giant of sorts, and at the sight of him, Belles Cousines faints dead away, and can't bear to watch the expected slaughter of her lover. However, Saintre, as always, remembers to recite the potent prayer she had taught him; and another adversary bites the dust, in spite of the awesome odds in his favor. A year later, Madame decides that it is time for her Jehan to draw a little fresh attention to himself by organizing a Pas d' Armes, between Gravelines and Calais, so as to demonstrate his knightly capabilities against the English.

P. 111. "Jehan de Saintre": The Liberation of Knighthood 41 What else could a poor thirteen-year old boy answer to a great lady, when she presented such a neat, promising, and foolproof package for success? But Belles Cousines' standards were so high that poor Jehan considered the ineffable rewards of Amour to be beyond his reach: no great lady would ever consider him worthy of them ... Madame has overplayed her hand. She has to persuade Saintre that he does possess the necessary assets to succeed.

Indeed, this would be a ludicrous way to indoctrinate a young man for the pursuit of chivalry. The training of knights was an arduous business; and from Tristan to Perceval, and in the actual careers of Boucicaut, Lalain, Jean de Bueil, Jean de Calabre, and the sons of Louis of Luxemburg, it is obvious that the task was always entrusted to men. In this respect, the chapter on Boucicaut's physical exercises and performances, in the Livre des Faicts, is particularly enlightening. But in fact, there is not one iota, in Madame's indoctrination, concerning the practice of chivalry itself, although she will later give her ward precise orders relative to the performance of ceremonial functions.
