Code, Konzept und Konjunkturen des Rittertums in der französischen Hofkultur des 17. Jahrhunderts
In 17th century French court culture chivalry was by no means an anachronism. The notion of “ancienne chevalerie” occupied a central place in the French discourse on nobility and also in the representation or in the self-fashioning of monarchs and nobles. During the reign of Henry IV the court replaced the tournaments by far less dangerous carrousels, but both forms of court festival had much more in common than is generally recognized. Carrousels offered an occasion for the nobility to approach the monarch and to appear as his loyal and valiant liegemen and vassals. This was the case in 1612 and even in 1662, in the first year of Louis’ XIV personal reign. But in the age of Versailles the King monopolized chivalry so that the ideal became less attractive and less plausible. The carrousel of 1685 was just a pale copy of the former events and in the 18th century no further carrousels were realized. King, court and nobles lost their unifying ideal of chivalry, and the concomitant values and aesthetic ideals became obsolete.
