Born in Bayeux in 1385, Alain Chartier, became one of early French poets. His work has inspired many later poets and therefore is regarded as a trendsetter in French literature. He became royal poet under Charles the sixth and seventh and also moved in certain political circles in the roaring times of the French national awareness (Joanne of Arc). This famous son of Bayeux is commemorated with a statue in his place of birth.
