EDITORS COMMENTS
This powerful engraving captures the tragic moment of the fatal wounding of King Henry II of France in 1559 during a jousting accident. The detailed engraving by Albert Robida depicts the intense and chaotic scene as the king is gravely injured, showcasing the dangers and risks involved in such medieval tournaments. The illustration is part of Histoire de France Tintamarresque, a satirical history book by Touchatout from the late 19th century. Through this satirical drawing, Robida brings to life the dramatic event with a touch of humor and irony, highlighting the folly and consequences of reckless actions. The image portrays not only the physical harm suffered by King Henry II but also serves as a scathing commentary on power dynamics, politics, and warfare in Renaissance Europe. The intricate details in the armor and expressions on faces convey a sense of urgency and tragedy that captivates viewers. As we gaze upon this historical artwork, we are reminded of how even kings were not immune to mortal danger and how one fateful moment can change the course of history. The Fatal wounding of King Henry II serves as a poignant reminder of human vulnerability amidst grandeur and power.
