Jean de Metz (c. 1398 - after 1456), known in Age of Empires II as Sieur de Metz, was a French soldier in the Hundred Years' War. He and his companion Bertrand de Poulengy are best known for escorting Joan of Arc from Vaucouleurs to Chinon in 1429. They appear in the scenario An Unlikely Messiah, and are also available in the Scenario Editor. Sieur de Metz has the appearance of a Knight, but has better combat stats.

As a hero, he cannot be converted and can regenerate health (since Conquerors), making him very valuable in the scenario.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The last known act of de Metz is testifying at the retrial that found Joan innocent in 1456. The date and circumstances of his death are unknown.
  • De Metz bought Joan's armor and provided her with male clothes and a horse.
  • Though de Metz had absolute faith in Joan, he often bickered with her due to her desire to stop and pray at every church on the ride to Chinon, specially while traveling through Burgundian-held territory.
