Battle of Poitiers.  When King John of France and his young son were captured at Poitiers there was much quarrelling as to who should claim the King.

John "The Good" was taken to England where he lived for many years until his death.  Original artwork for illustration on pp20-21 of Look and Learn issue no 495 (10 July 1971).
