Donné as menestrels … qui juerent devant monseigneur d’une rotte et d’unez orghes portatives. Chanteurs, musiciens et ménestrels à la cour de Hainaut sous les Bavière, 1345-1417

Abstract : In the northern reaches of the kingdom, between England and the Empire, the counties of Flanders and Namur and the duchy of Brabant, the county of Hainault under the Bavarians-Straubing worked as an interface, based on a clever policy of marriages with the Valois of France and Burgundy, the Plantâgenets-Lancaster, the Luxemburg and the Habsburg. Even though its court was modest, proportionate to a territory of no great extent, this position at the crossroads of the dynastic mobilities was going to change it into a place of exchanges in the field of arts, literature and music. The ministrels, musicians, cantors and storytellers from the terroir of Hainault and those who came from other European courts congregated there, swapping repertories and melodies, contributing to the development of an international courtly culture. This study, which is based on the accounts of the general receipt, the bailiwick and the domains of Hainault, is dedicated to that reality as well as that, more mundane, of the life of these regulars of the counts and their circle.
