[Paper:] Emmanuel de Boos, Quelle date pour le Tournoi de Compiègne ?
The Société française d’heraldique et de sigillographie invites anyone interest to attend a paper by Emmanuel de Boos that is going to pose brand-new perspectives on the question ‘When was the Tournament of Compiègne?’.
Following the Armorial Beyeren, the Tournament of Compiègne was believed to have taken place in 1238. However, an enquiry by Emmanuel de Boos has shown that this view is in fact false. By situating the event in its immediate context, and by comparing a variety of sources, de Boos will offer a new perspective.
If you are interested, the society kindly asks you to confirm your attendance by email: firstname.lastname@example.org Due to limited seating, participation is possible on a first-come, first-serve basis only.
18 June 2015, 17.00 at the Archives nationales, Salle d’albâtre at the Centre d’accueil et de recherche des Archives nationales (CARAN), 11, rue des Quatre Fils, Paris 75003.
