On This Day

21 Jan 1670

Le voleur de grand chemin Claude Duval, né en Normandie en 1643 est executé à Tyburn (Londres). Son épitaphe est ainsi rédigée:

Here lies DuVall: Reder, if male thou art,
Look to thy purse; if female, to thy heart.
Much havoc has he made of both; for all
Men he made to stand, and women he made to fall
The second Conqueror of the Norman race,
Knights to his arm did yield, and ladies to his face.
Old Tyburn’s glory; England’s illustrious Thief,
Du Vall, the ladies’ joy; Du Vall, the ladies’ grief.
21 Jan 1686
