Marignan - the nobles

The 1518 version of the celebration was played for the benefit of the nobles and the royal court.  I thought this couple looked perfect in those roles.  Of course, there were many more but I decided it was better to limit the view to see more detail.


  1. The other thing I always find interesting about these events is just how willing ordinary French blokes are to dress up in tights and tunics and appear in public. You don't get that in the anglo world.

  2. Very much like a scene out of the past.
