Michel du Guesclin was a planter from the French-speaking region of Atlantis. He joined the Atlantean Assembly at the outset of the Atlantean War of Independence (much to the relief of the English-speaking delegates, who feared that the French Atlanteans might not stand united with them against England).[1]

Du Guesclin joined the delegation that convinced Victor Radcliff to take command of the Army of the Atlantean Assembly. As Radcliff had made war on the French Atlanteans a dozen years before, this faith counted for a great deal.[2]

Later on, Du Guesclin acted as a sounding board for Radcliff's idea to seek an alliance with France.[3]

Du Guesclin was distantly related to François Kersauzon, the probable discoverer of Atlantis in the 15th century, and Roland Kersauzon, an officer of the losing army in the previous war. A devout Catholic, du Guesclin abhorred the seemingly atheistic philosophy of Voltaire.
