Meanings of the French words deemed appropriate

Barbe= If used in the male tense, it would signify an Arabian horse, but in this verse; it is female? And signifies a beard. Crespe = Curled, frizzled; crisped. Engin= An engine, tool, instrument; also, understanding, policy, reach of wit; also, fraud, craft, deceit. Subjuguera= will subdue, vanquish, overcome, tame, bring into subjection, or under the yolk. Cruelle= Cruel, fell, ungentle, fierce, tyrannous, rigorous, unmerciful; bloody, bloodthirsty, bloody minded. Fiere= Proud, arrogant, insolent, scornful, disdainful; also, fierce, eager, bloody, cruel, savage, unmerciful, inhumane; also, bold, stout, courageous, audacious. Ostera= Will remove, withdraw; will pull, take, or carry away; will put off; will bereave, or deprive of; will discharge or deliver; will drive, or expel from. longin, as loing= Far, much, a great way off. Baniere as Banniere= A banner, square ensign, flag, or Standard; also, a rag, ribbon, as Henry the 2nd of France tied to his lance: in honour of his mistress, Diane de Poitiers.

Chiren, is a very powerful character in our future history, who will be at odds with those who march under the flag of selin, the Moon, which appears also to the name of another character.

Thus, we might translate

The one with black frizzy beard through craftiness,
Will overcome a cruel and fierce people:
The great Chiren will retrieve from far away,
All those captured under the flag of seline.
