In the Shadow of Burgundy: The Court of Guelders in the Late Middle Ages
Cambridge University Press, 26 lut 2004 - 470
This book offers a wide-ranging study of the court of Guelders in the Low Countries, which offers an excellent vantage point for the study of late medieval court culture. Surrounded by the vast territories of the dukes of Burgundy, and feeling the growing power of the Valois dukes, it managed to remain independent until 1473. Rich archival sources convey the striking cultural and political richness of the court, poised between French and German spheres of influence, and shows how Guelders can be taken as representative of Europe's many medium-sized courts.
