Le vêtement à la cour de Charles le Téméraire, duc de Bourgogne (1467-1477) : de l’habillement à l’outil politique

Abstract : The court culture of the fifteenth century requires the prince to give himself to see his subjects, he must be beautiful and show his power. This is how Charles the Bold, Duke of Burgundy (1467-1477), conceives his image and gives himself in representation. In a court known for its excessive pomp and an ever stricter etiquette, the clothing is thought to value the prince and emphasize his superiority. Clothing becomes the support of a princely identity and conveys political messages. The garment becomes a tool of princely propaganda used during public events such as princely entrances, funerals and various festivities. By an anthropological and historical approach, this research aims to study the political use of clothing at the court of Burgundy under the reign of Charles the Bold. The typology of princely clothing and court nobility and the study of dress habits at various public festivities, this research also highlights the control exercised by the prince on his appearance and on that of the members of his court by strictly observing a clothing etiquette.
