Imitation of the spadin of Frederick IV of Lorraine (see link below).
Gaucher de Chatillon was Count of Porciens, and Constable of France under five different kings (1302-1329).
In 1313 he married Isabelle of Rumigny, the widow of Duke Theobald II of Lorraine, and Lady of Neufchateau, and claimed the right to coin in dowry from Isabelle. Frederick IV of Lorraine opposed this, and in 1318 they came to an agreement (reference deSaulcy p. 58) whereby Gaucher's coins would be recognized in the Duchy of Lorraine for as long as Isabelle lived.
