In this engaging work, Malcolm Vale sets out to recapture the splendor of court culture in Western Europe during the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. Exploring the time between the death of St Louis and the rise of Burgundian power in the Low Countries, he illuminates a period in the history of princes and court life previously overshadowed by that of the courts of the dukes of Burgundy. The result is a fascinating evaluation of the nature and role of the court in European history, and a celebration of a forgotten age.

"This is an important book. As its subtitle indicates, it addresses two major and complex themes in the history of the later Middle Ages: the nature of the court and its place in contemporary cultural life. Its treatment of both themes is innovative and persuasive."--Ralph A. Griffiths, edieval
