Welcome to 1443!
Gaston IV, Count of Foix, and his wife, Eléonore de Navarre, then passing through the Château de Foix, left the scene. Part of their court remained at the castle, which in this context of the Hundred Years War, trained: tournaments and jousting punctuated their daily lives. But without forgetting the relaxation: between tavern and courteous love, the atmosphere is ultimately good-natured!
