In the Third Book of Gargantua and Pantagruel, titled in French Le Tiers Livre des faicts et dicts héroïques du noble Pantagruel, composés par M. François Rabelais, docteur en médecine by François Rabelais is published in 1546.

In this volume, Rabelais returned to the story of Pantagruel himself. The third book concerns Pantagruel and his friend Panurge, who spend the entire book discussing with many people the question of whether Panurge should marry; the question is unresolved. The book ends with the start of a sea voyage in search of the oracle of the divine bottle to resolve once and for all the question of marriage.

It features the couillon blasons and the story of Hans Carvel.
