If I wanted to research this, I would start with encyclopedias of medieval art and books on the Gothic style in France and look up the names in the index.

There is a good article by Thomas Green on how legal documents often describe an assault in whatever language was necessary to give the desired result. In England after the late 13th century, the legal definition of murder was much broader than the popular understanding, and coroners’ juries often found a way to square the circle and save people they liked from the gallows.

Regardless, it shows that you don’t mess with a Bürger or a citoyen!
