A La Cour du Roi
A La Cour du Roi is a fine French tapestry with intricate detail of a jousting tournament. This design is by Jean-Paul Laurens (1838-1921) though, of course, it is full of typical medieval tournament details. His tapestry was woven at the Gobelin Workshops in Paris. It is also available in two halves for a fine pair of matching tapestries: La Cour and La Joute.
Jousting tournament tapestry
The first jousting tournament on record took place in 1066 and was accredited to a French man, Godfrey de Preuilly. During the 10th and 15th century jousting became increasingly popular in Europe and was favored by kings and noblemen alike. The tournaments provided the opportunity for knights to keep themselves at their physical peak and to develop their fighting skills in preperation for war. In the early days of jousting the knights would often fight to the death but in later years, especially after The Statute of Arms for Tournaments Act of 1292, chivalry, showmanship and ceremony became more the order of the day.
