abstract
This article discusses the representation of nobility and chivalry in the historiographical literature of Jean Froissart and his fifteenth-century followers. By analyzing the discourse of those chronicles, this article intends to focus on the social functions of this literary tradition for its intended public, the nobles and state officials of the Burgundian-Habsburg court. As such, this publication questions the existing interpretation of the remarkable emphasis of those chroniclers on virtue as the source of ‘true nobility’ as an attempt of ambitious officials and intellectuals to obtain a noble status. The social meaning of those chronicles is to be situated in the fact that they were important for the definition and dissemination of a set of norms which were directive for the public behavior of nobles.
