Description
This beautifully illustrated little book illuminates the code of behavior that shaped courtly relations between the sexes in medieval times. Chivalry could bring together the ardent knight, willing to lay down his life for his mistress; the powerful queen, often-times far less virtuous than her loyal servant; and the bawdy troubadour who sang of love and deceit. Set with miniature paintings and pages from manuscripts, the book offers an anecdotal account of chivalry and its evolution, from its roots in the religious fervor of the Crusades to its zenith in Eleanor of Aquitaine's Court of Love, where romantic disputes were resolved.
