comment What difference is between “seigneurie” and “manor”?
In the English system it is entirely possible to be armigerous but landless (Esquires and Banneret Knights); I don't know if there are other examples. "Manor" however refers only to the land - multiple Manors can be held by the same armiger.

comment What difference is between “seigneurie” and “manor”?
At that level of detail, I suspect so. Although within the narrow context of the quote, I think the equivalent English term might be Armiger. Note that unlike the example you cite, English arms are controlled by the College of Arms.

I don't disagree, but I'm not sure how this answers the question.

"publication of a letter" implies a private letter - this was a campaign strategy. I also think the quote helps illustrate the appeal.

Are there any sources for this? Sounds like a fascinating topic for further reading.

"Blitzkreig" is anachronistic; I've replaced it with words that will avoid distraction.
