Guillaume de Harsigny
Guillaume de Harsigny (1300–1393),[note 1] was a French doctor and court physician to Charles V of France. One of the most notable physicians of his day, at age 92 Harsigny played a crucial role in the recovery of Charles VI of France from a coma brought about by a fit of insanity. Following his death in 1392, Harsigny was buried in a tomb at Laon which featured one of the earliest examples of medieval cadaver tomb sculpture.
