Rinaldo des Trois-Echelles du Mayne (d. ca.
1571)
A much-dreaded French sorcerer of the reign of Charles IX,
who, at his execution, boasted before the king that he had in
France three hundred thousand confederates, whom they
could not burn—meaning, perhaps, the demons of the witches
sabbat. Trois-Echelles is cited in Jean Bodin’s De la démonomanie
des Sorciers.
