    • Ellen: This… is Jacques Cherbourg's story (She reads the letter) 'Your Majesty, I was a jongleur hired by young Prince William to sail with him to England. The ship was set ablaze and people were drowning. Being the only good swimmer, I managed to stay afloat and saw the prince and his bride save themselves in a rowboat, along with Father Waleran and Lord and Lady Hamleigh. I was about to call to the prince for help when the unthinkable happened (Flashback to Regan killing the prince and his bride) I tried to save him, but it was too late. His ring, however, slipped off into my hand. Your Majesty, your son's ring is the proof of what I saw. I swear to the truth of these words on my immortal soul. Jacques Cherbourg.'
