Seen Through a Squint: The Letters of Jacques De Beaune to Michelle De Saubonne, June to September 1505

The full text article is not available.

Abstract:

Examines 23 letters written in the summer of 1505 by Jacques de Beaune, a Languedoc financier who oversaw the affairs of Queen Anne of Brittany and who would later become baron de Semblan├žay. The letters were sent to a woman named Michelle de Saubonne, wardrobe mistress to the queen, and concerned the future marriage of Claude de France, the only living child of the marriage of Anne of Brittany and Louis XII. Her mother, hoping to ensure an independent Brittany, wanted Claude betrothed to Charles of Luxembourg. The king wanted Claude to marry Francis of Angoul├¬me, heir to the throne of France. Angered, the queen left for Brittany and the letters were sent in hopes of convincing her to return to court.
