Bertrand de Poulengy was the squire who accompanied Jeanne to Chinon.
He was armed at the expense of the King, and was lodged at Orléans at the home of Jacques Boucher, and he was a friend of Gobert Thibault, the King's judge at Blois.
He was questioned at Toul, at the time of the Rehabilitation, in 1455. He was described as a nobleman, an equerry of the King, and about sixty-eight years old.
As a young man he knew Jeanne's parents, and had spent some time in the house of these "good workers."
He said she was a good young woman, "as good as a saint," and very devout; that she tended her father's animals and horses. Bertrand had met Jeanne again at Vaucouleurs and with Jean de Metz procured military equipment for her.
Then they took the "road to France" with his servant, Julien, Jean de Honnecourt, servant of Jean de Metz, Colet de Vienne and Richard the archer.
