Français : Essai de restitution des armoiries de Michel Eyquem, seigneur de Montaigne (+1592).Dans ses «Essais» livre I, chapitre 46, il décrit ses armes : «d’azur semé de trèfles d’or, à une patte de lyon de mesme, armée de gueules, mise en fasce» (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

(Marvelous quote!  And, a pretty challenging solve.  Only two words, and the last name, ended in E.  And, neither single letter words were used.  For me, the placement of the commas, and the two short words following the commas, were the biggest clues.  After discerning that it was all downhill.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Loads of pics of paintings and statues of this man – and his castles, and such – but the coat of arms REALLY caught my attention.  Beatutiful!  I decided to give you an additional pic of a painting of him, because I liked the hat he was rocking!  Without the hat he has an ENORMOUS head!  Like Egghead, from Batman.  Not exactly flattering, by today’s standards of beauty.  Maybe back then, but not today.   —   YUR
