The Italian Milieu at Court

(p.154) Chapter Four The Italian Milieu at Court
Charles the Bold and Italy (1467–1477)
Liverpool University Press

This chapter focuses on the Italians at Charles the Bold's court. It explains who these Italians were, both to give an idea of what they were like, as individuals and as functionaries in a social and political context, and particularly to illuminate their activities at court. The material presented is also relevant to the question of the extent to which Charles — especially when compared with his three predecessors — exhibited characteristics which might be termed Italianate, for it is largely the number of Italians with whom he loved to surround himself which causes the question to be raised in the first place.
