The map on the next page is a modified reproduction of one included in the famous Atlas of Ortelius (edition of 1850), those places only being indicated which are of interest in connection with the 'First Part of Henry VI' and 'Henry V.' Parallels of latitude are reckoned eastwardly around the globe from a line in the Atlantic Ocean about 20 degrees west of Greenwich; parallels of longitude are as in modern maps. The two lines of dashes mark the approximate limits of English dominion in France prior to the relief of Orleans in 1429. Only the central district, south of the Loire and east of Bordeaux, and the besieged city of Orleans then recognized the Dauphin's authority.
