[Booted Head]. The nickname of Philippe des Comines.
“You, Sir Philip des comines, were at a hunting-match with the duke
your master; and when he alighted after the chase, he required your
services in drawing off his boots. Reading in your looks some natural
resentment, he ordered you to sit down in turn, and rendered you the
same office. ... but ... no sooner had he plucked one of your boots off
than he brutally beat it about your head ... and his privileged fool Le
Glorieux gave you the name of Tito Bottée.” —
