In Act 1, Scene 1 of "The Second Part of King Henry the Sixth", the Duke of Gloucester says:

Have you yourselves, Somerset, Buckingham
Brave York, Salisbury, and victorious Warwick,
Receiv'd deep scars in France and Normandy?
Or hath mine uncle Beaufort and myself
With all the learned Council of the realm
Studied so long, sat in the Council House,
Early and late, debating to and fro
How France and Frenchmen might be kept in awe?
