Hi there ! This is about a very controversial character. “Gilles de Rais” the famous murderer known by Perrault as “Blue Beard”. I would like to share the two parts of his life. When he was the second Marshal of France, the figure of the chivalry, luminous during the “Hundred Years War”. And, on the other side, his fall. The tentacles are here to show his interest for alchemy, Satanist practice and the Demon called Baron he tried to invoke.
The shield is “a black cross on a gold background”, his coat of arms. The Montmorency-de-Laval-Rais’s arms. His sword is holding by one of the tentacle ( it’s obviously symbolic ) that shows his monstruosity against innocents.
