Edward De Maesschalck

Lecture on Mary of Burgundy

“This is the story of the Burgundian dukes who were born as princes, lived like monarchs and hoped to die as kings. But they never ascended to the throne.” With these words, Edward de Maesschalck immediately sets the tone for his beautifully illustrated standard reference work De Bourgondische vorsten (‘The Burgundian Dukes’). Plunge into Mary of Burgundy’s exciting story set in a wider political and social context of the plague, the Hundred Years’ War, crusades, weddings and funerals, tournaments and assassinations.
