Nationality?[edit]

Froissart is described here as "a medieval French author", but the article says he was from Valenciennes and in the service of Philippa of Hainaut and Joanna of Brabant. None of this seems to make him French. He *spoke* French, but that doesn't make him French either. Does "French author" just mean "author of books in French"? --Andreas Philopater (talk) 07:56, 24 September 2015 (UTC)
