Summary
"Charles the Bold and Italy is the first study to give an overview that not only places Charles the Bold's relations with Italy in both an Italian and a European context, but also explains and illuminates the presence of Italians at his court. Richard Walsh considers why Charles the Bold was so interested in Italy; what he expected to obtain, and did obtain, from his relations with Italian rulers; why there were so many Italians in his entourage; and to what extent and in what ways the duke himself was influenced by them. Drawing on extensive research in the archive collections of Milan, Venice, Mantua, Modena and Florence, as well as Burgundian sources in Lille and Brussels, Charles the Bold and Italy offers a comprehensive account of a fascinating aspect of Burgundian history."--BOOK JACKET
