Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

I have a black beard and I am very tall. My wife Claude is Louis XII's daughter, so I'm his son-in-law and also his first cousin once removed. My favourite hobbies are hunting and archery. I also like going to knights' tournaments. I live during the Renaissance and I admire Italian artists. The famous Leonardo Da Vinci works for me! Do you know who I am? My name is Francis I!
