For centuries the Chronicles have been recognized as the chief expression of the chivalric revival of 14th-century England and France. The main source for the early part of the chronicles were the Vrayes Chroniques of Jean Le Bel, of which Froissart directly copied large parts. Le Bel wrote his chronicle for Jean, lord of Beaumont. Jean's grandson, Guy II, Count of Blois later became the main patron of Book II of Froissart's Chronicles. Froissart's own experiences, combined with those of interviewed witnesses, supply much of the detail of the later books. Froissart was an eye witness to the events of the Siege of Paris. Although Froissart may never have been in a battle, he visited Sluys in 1386 to see the preparations for an invasion of England. He was present at other significant events such as the baptism of Richard II. Some of the Plates included:Included March through France from Barfleur to Calais AD 100, The Siege of Tunis, The Execution of Aymerigot Marcell, at Paris, The combat of Thirty Englishmen against Thirty Frenchmen near Ploermel in Brittany, The Entry of John de Maountfort and his Duchess into Nantes, The Expedition of Africa, undertaken by the Duke de Bourbon, as General in Chief, with several other English & French Knights, at the entreaty of the Genoese, Queen Isabel of Bavaria?s Entry into Paris, The Sea fight of L A Rochelle, Charles the 5th of France and his Queen crowned in the great Church at Rheims.
