EDITORS COMMENTS
In the heart of the 14th century, amidst the grandeur and pageantry of medieval England, King Richard II (r. 1377-1399) presides over a tournament between two noble dukes, Thomas Mowbray, Duke of Norfolk, and Henry Bolingbroke, Duke of Hereford. The scene, captured in this evocative print from the 1390s, unfolds at the height of chivalric competition. Richard II, dressed in his royal robes and seated upon his ornate throne, watches intently as the two dukes, clad in gleaming armor and helmets, prepare for combat on horseback. The herald, holding aloft a white cloth, signals the beginning of the jousting match, and the audience, a throng of nobles and commoners alike, holds their collective breath in anticipation. Suddenly, Richard II interrupts the tournament, his expression a mixture of concern and determination. The reason for his intervention remains unclear, but the consequences of this momentous decision will ripple through the English court and ultimately lead to Richard's downfall. This arresting image, with its intricate details of horse and rider, armor, and heraldry, transports us back to a time when the line between honor, loyalty, and power was as fine as a tournament lance. The print, from the esteemed Mary Evans Picture Library, offers a captivating glimpse into the rich tapestry of English royalty and the intrigues of the medieval age.
