Chivalry and the Perfect Prince
Tournaments, Art, and Armor at the Spanish Habsburg Court
By (author) Braden K. Frieder
Chivalry and the Perfect Prince by Braden K. Frieder
Book DescriptionThis is a survey of the ceremonial armour crafted for the Spanish Habsburg monarchs of the sixteenth century. It examines notable tournaments and pageantry held at the courts of Charles V and Philip II, and the artworks associated with them. Braden Frieder guides the reader through these tournaments, jousting, and other knightly exercises as part of a larger aristocratic culture that included arms and armour, paintings, tapestries, medals, and sculptures with chivalric themes. Frieder presents Habsburg tournaments in their proper historical context as an extension of imperial politics, drawing comparisons with popular chivalric literature of the period. Frieder's study utilises extensive primary source material and contemporary documents, many appearing for the first time in English.
