Who is Walter Leslie?

Sir Walter Leslie (died 1382) was a 14th-century Scottish nobleman and crusader, one of the foremost knights of his time.

Leslie was a younger son, probably the third son, of Sir Andrew Leslie of Leslie Castle sixth in line from Bartholomew, founder of the name Leslie in Aberdeenshire, by his wife Mary Abernethy, daughter and coheiress of Sir Alexander Abernethy.

Along with his elder brother Norman, he obtained safe conduct through England on his way to Prussia to participate in a crusade against the pagans of that region. He had returned by 1356.

He is then said to have gone to France, to aid the French in their wars with the English. He must have gone there more than once, for he was present at the Battle of Pontvallain in 1370, where he proved instrumental in the English defeat and was rewarded by King Charles with a yearly pension of two hundred gold francs.
