Series: Royal Historical Society Studies in History New Series (Book 3.

Series: Royal Historical Society Studies in History New Series (Book 3). Hardcover: 312 pages. Graeme Small has shed light on the darkest corners of an important court chronicler's public and private affairs. Everything from Chastelain's family connections, to his ascent in ducal service is gracefully covered in a tightly argued piece of work, heavily (and usefully) footnoted, with archival and printed references aplenty for the keen Chastelain scholar.

This is the first historical study of Chastelain in over half a century. Published December 7th 1997 by Royal Historical Society (first published November 6th 1997).

This book sketches the contours of the noble population in the county of Zeeland between 1400 and 1550, thereby answering the central question of how the political and socio-economic position of the noblemen in society actually evolved in a period characterised by the processes of state formation, urbanisation and commercialisation. The question is approached from two perspectives: that of the nobility as a group and that of the individual nobleman and his family.

Few texts offer as many insights into the history of Valois Burgundy as the work of George Chastelain (c.1414-1475), official chronicler to the dukes Philip the Good and Charles the Bold. Chastelain, a trusted courtier, closely observed his masters' authority in the many dominions they ruled in the Low Countries and France, and the role they played in the political life of neighbouring kingdoms and principalities and in Christendom as a whole. This is the first historical study of Chastelain in over half a century. An account of his life and career is followed by a study of the chronicle, Chastelain's interpretation within it of ducal actions and aspirations, and the role it played in the historical culture of the governing classes in the Netherlands after the death of the last duke in 1477. Overall, Dr Small offers a complete reappraisal of the political ambitions of the ducal elite, particularly with regard to the supposed evolution of the ducal dominions into a `Burgundian state' quite distinct from the Kingdom of France.
