Panel 02 - Donor (Count Thibalt VI ?)

 © Stuart Whatling, 2008

Various people have suggested this is Count Thibault VI of Chartres, who supposedly donated the adjoining Zodiac window as well.

The shield shown lacks the "crosslets pommés or" (small golden crosses on the blue sections) but otherwise matches the shield held by Thibault in the Clerestory St Martin window; Bay 109, panel 01 and panel 04.
