Sy Scholfield quotes "Le roi René: sa vie, son administration, ses travaux artistiques et littéraires d'après les documents inédits des archives de France et d'Italie, Volume 1" by Albert Lecoy de La Marche (Slatkine Reprints, 1969), p. 3: "René, deuxième fils de Louis II, roi de Sicile, duc d'Anjou, comte de Provence, et d'Yolande d'Aragon, son épouse, naquit au château d'Angers, dans une des tours avoisinant le grand portail 1, le 16 janvier 1409, vers trois heures du matin." [Translation: René, second son of Louis II, King of Sicily, Duke of Anjou, Count of Provence, and Yolande of Aragon, his wife, was born in the castle of Angers, in one of the towers surrounding the main gate, on January 16, 1409, about three o'clock in the morning.]
