Description

This session reflects new approaches to the study of medieval lordship in speakers' recourse to the critical re-examination of narrative chronicles and sealed charters along with revised views of lord-follower relations and inheritance customs. Papers examine how counts reshaped acquired or inherited counties in northern France, with case studies from Blois-Chartres, Champagne, and Guînes in the 11th and 12th centuries.
