Tournoi de Chauvency

A poem written by french trouvère Jacques Bretel describes the festivities surrounding the tournament held at Chauvency in 1285.
The event was organized by Louis de Looz, Count of Chiny, lasting for six days and bringing together knights from Lorraine and other neighbouring regions (Burgundy, Hainaut, Flanders, Germany).
The arms of sixty knights named in the poem are represented here, some which are blazonned in the text while others are featured in the miniatures.
The numbering from S.Clemmensen's study (1-61) has been used here.
