This may be a silly question but did anyone know the swordsman of calais’ true identity? I’m guessing not- since he was an executioner…

No, we don't know his true identity. Jean Rombaud is named as the executioner in C C Humphrey's work of fiction "The French Executioner" and apparently a man of that name was the executioner in St Omer in the 1530s, but we don't know for certain.
