Jean Bureau (c. 1390 - 1463) was a French artillery commander and siege engineer during the later years of the Hundred Years' War. He is credited with the French victory in the decisive Battle of Castillon. Bureau appears in Age of Empires II in the final scenario of the Joan of Arc campaign, A Perfect Martyr and is also available in the Scenario Editor. He has the appearance of a Bombard Cannon, but with overall inferior stats. For that reason, some players choose to delete him once siege artillery becomes an option. As a hero, he cannot be converted and can regenerate health (since The Conquerors).
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Bureau worked as a lawyer in English-occupied Paris before he offered his services to King Charles VII of France in 1434, two years before the French recovered the city.
