"There were kings of France named Pepin"
 Julian slightly mistakes Richard's last name, which is Papen. There were a number of medieval Kings of the Franks called Pepin, who ruled over parts of what is now France and western Germany. Famous Pepins included Pepin the Short, the father of Charlemagne, Pepin the Hunchback (Charlemagne's son) and various Pepins of Aquitaine.
