Masquerade at the French court, 1393, (1470-1475).Artist: Master of the Harley Froissart

Masquerade at the French court, (Dance of the Wodehouses), 1393, (1470-1475). Masquerade at the court of King Charles VI of France, accompanied by live music from musicians in the upper right corner. On the right are coats of arms with the fleur-de-lis, and stylised floral decoration. In 1393, Isabeau de Baviere organised a celebration of the marriage of one of her ladies-in-waiting. Her husband Charles VI and others dressed up as wild men in costumes of cloth soaked in resinous wax or pitch covered with hemp so that they appeared shaggy and hairy from head to foot. Despite a ban on torches in the room, the king's brother, Louis of Valois, approached with a lighted torch and one of the dancers caught fire, causing panic. The Duchesse de Berry hid the king under her dress and saved his life. Four of the others died. This incident became known as the Bal des Ardents (the 'Ball of the Burning Men'). Miniature colour print from The Chronicler of European Chivalry by GG Coulton, (London, 1930)
