French Nobility. Count of Vaudemont. Also known as Ferry ler de Lorraine. A commander at the Battle of Agincourt (October 25, 1415), he died in action. The son of John I, Duke of Lorraine, Frederick became Count of Vaudemont in 1390 while his older brother, Charles II, succeeded to the dukedom. In 1393 he also became Sire of Joinville through marriage. He was a member of the Burgundian faction and at the height of their political power (1407 to 1413) was an "advisor" to the mad King Charles VI in Paris. In 1409 he made a pilgrimage to the Holy Land. When Henry V invaded France in August 1415, the Duke of Lorraine refused to get involved and sent his brother in his place. Frederick commanded part of the second French division at Agincourt and was killed in the fighting. He was one of the 14 noblemen slain in that battle who were buried in a monastery church at Hesdin. The Spanish completely destroyed Hesdin in 1553.
