Alymer Toy Soldiers Figure BF-13 Oliver, Sieur D'Aubigny. Alymer Toy Soldiers was founded in 1947 by Valencian metallurgical entrepreneur Angel Comes. Mr. Comes intended to create toy soldiers for strategy games and named his newfound company after the combined names of his daughters Alicia and Mercedes. Alymer has experimented over the years, making soldiers at 30mm, 33mm, and 60mm scales using both plastic and metal. In 2014 Tono Marti founded Military Models that intended to continue in the traditional production of Alymer soldiers. The D’Aubigny family was a prominent family on the Cotentin peninsula of Normandy, England. Little is known about the D’Aubigny family other than that they may have been descended from Roger de Tosny who was once the Lord of Belvoir, and that they were most prominent near the turn of the 13th century, but were granted no nobility at least until the year 1300. In fact, the man depicted by this specific figure, Oliver D’Aubigny, has been somewhat lost in history and his timeline and origin are unknown. It is believed that he is descended from William D’Aubigny who was the first Earl of Lincoln and of Arundel. In 1153 William helped arrange a truce which came to be known as the Treaty of Wallingford which brought and end to the Anarchy. This truce led to Henry Plantagenet ascending the throne as Henry II. Henry II granted William possession of Arundel Castle which his son held after him. This piece would fit well into a collection of European nobles.
