Geoffroi was the son of the famous knight and author Sir Geoffroi de Charny and his wife Jeanne de Vergy. (They were the first reliably recorded owners of the Turin Shroud)

The Effigy translation was generously provided by author Ian Wilson. It states as follows: ‘Here lies the noble man Monsieur Geoffroy de Charny at one time seigneur of Thory, in the district of Beauvais, who died the 22nd day of the month of May 1398. Pray God for his soul.'.
The Effigy is frequently represented elsewhere as being of the father but the translation clearly shows it is of Geoffroi II, the son.
