Love the PRINCESS BRIDE reference.
However, that would be Capo Ferro. It just so happens that seconds before checking giants I had put down my R&D (rapier and dagger) fight manual. I've been reading and working out of Dale Girard's "Actors on Guard: A Practical Guide for the Use of Rapier & Dagger for the Stage and Screen" for the past six months. Right now, I am reading up on cross parries with R&D.
Capo Ferro and Agrippa were two of the biggest influences on Elizabethan-era swordplay (after diGrassi and Saviolo, and later Domenico Angelo), though we can't discount George Silver.
If there was a Thibault historically, he didn't amount to much for modern-day study of the sword.
