English term or phrase: noblemen from the Burgundy
Noblemen from the Burgundy, c. 1465. Could it be "Adlige aus Burgund, um 1465"?
RPC
Edelmänner aus Burgund, um 1465
Explanation:
Your solution is good, but instead of Adlige I would say "Edelmänner", because Adlige includes women, too. "Noblemen" includes only men, because in German there are also "Edelfrauen".

Though Burgund has the article "das", in common sentences you don't use it. Therefore, I would suggest the version without the article (see link below).

c.= circa, in German "um", which means it's not exactly defined, if it was in 1465 or some years earlier or later. Liebgard didn't pay attention to that.
