9780321085375: Jacques Coeur: Entrepreneur and King's Bursar (Library of World Biography Series)

This biography traces the career of Frenchman Jacques Coeur, royal official, merchant, and financier, amidst war and exploration in Fifteenth-Century Europe, and invites readers to consider Coeur's career against a broad historical context.

 

The titles in the Library of World Biography series make ideal supplements for World History survey courses or other courses in the history curriculum where figures in history are explored. Paperback, brief and inexpensive, each interpretative biography in this series focuses on a figure whose actions and ideas significantly influenced the course of World history, and relates the life of its subject to the broader themes and developments of the times.

 

This biography traces the career of Jacques Coeur as a royal official, merchant, bursar, a supply officer catering to the needs of the royal household, and powerful financier to Charles the VII (1422-1461), amidst war and exploration in Fifteenth-Century Europe, and invites the reader to consider Coeur's career from its high point as one of the richest and most powerful men in France to his startling downfall, disgrace, and banishment against the broad historical background of the Fifteenth Century, a transitional time between the traditional medieval period and the early modern era.
