The Museum of Chivalry, Weapons, Furniture, Costumes, 1000 years of Medieval History - Villesèquelande - Aude -

The Museum of Chivalry, Weapons, Furniture, Costumes, 1000 years of Medieval History

Created more than 20 years ago, the Musée de la Chevalerie is the work of Gilles Alessandri, a medieval enthusiast who decided to share this passion transforming his collection into a museum.

Once housed in the Medieval City of Carcassonne, then in the old town of Narbonne, the Musée de la Chevalerie finally found its place in July 2015 not far from the Canal du Midi, in an old medieval stone house in the small historic village of Villesèquelande, only 15 minutes from the City of Carcassonne.

You will discover there the History of the Knighthood as well as various objects, tapestries, weapons, archery, numismatics and illumination, retracing the life in the time of the knights.

The visits of about one hour, are made with Gilles Alessandri, in medieval costume or with Mr. Jean Nicolas historian in the historical discovery of the Middle Ages, and especially the Cathar period. During this visit, you can be knighted as a knight...

 

Six themes are proposed:

- From the reign of Clovis to that of Charlemagne with the creation of the rules of the Heavy Cavalry and the first codes of chivalry,

- The Crusades, from Hugues Capet in 987 to the victory of Bouvines in 1214,

- The Crusade against the Cathars,

- The end of the Capetians, the Inquisition and the Knights Templar,

- The Hundred Years' War,

- The Italian Wars, from the reign of Louis XI to the end of the Knighthood in France with the prohibition of tournaments by Medici.

The museum shop offers reproductions of tapestries, cushions, models, as well as medieval jewellery and costumes...

Chevaliers et Chevalerie au Moyen Age: La vie quotidienne

Click on the image

La chevalerie, c'est d'abord une image, celle de nobles héros aux armures étincelantes, brandissant des bannières aux couleurs chatoyantes pour se jeter, la lance ou l'épée au poing, au secours de l'affligé, de la veuve et de l'orphelin. La réalité est plus complexe et l'évolution plus chaotique. Le mot « chevalier » est d'ailleurs ambigu et plus encore la notion de « chevalerie ». Son acception latine, la militia, désigne la force armée au service de l'État. Au Moyen Âge, cette fonction publique s'est privatisée et ses caractères aristocratiques et militaires se sont accrus. C'est le renforcement de la cavalerie lourde qui lui donne son impulsion entre le IXe et le XIe siècles. Mais, il faut attendre le XIIe siècle pour que la chevalerie s'affirme, avec la généralisation de la charge à la lance couchée. Elle se donne alors un code déontologique, fondé sur l'honneur, qui va « humaniser » quelque peu les « lois de la guerre ». Dans le même temps, l'Église tente de lui assigner une mission et une éthique conformes à sa cause. Ainsi s'ébauchent, du XIe au XIIIe siècle, les traits essentiels d'une chevalerie qui se mue peu à peu en confrérie d'élite de la noblesse.

Une synthèse magistrale sur la naissance et l'évolution de la chevalerie en France, de la Gaule romaine jusqu'à son apogée au XIIe siècle.

La chevalerie s'épanouit dans une grande compétition entre jeunes nobles : ils tiennent à donner le spectacle de prouesses réitérées plutôt que l'exemple d'une mort héroïque. Elle n'est donc nulle part plus présente que dans le tournoi et à la cour du prince, où l'on en fait un récit. C'est en France aux XIe et XIIe siècles qu'apparaît cette chevalerie classique. Bientôt toute l'Europe en adopte les codes, et les Arabes eux-mêmes l'admirent à l'occasion.
Mais d'où vient pareille civilisation des mœurs guerrières ? Est-elle vraiment à l'opposé des habitudes de vengeance qui caractérisaient les Francs et d'autres peuples " barbares " du Haut Moyen Age ? Cet ouvrage novateur et incontournable part en quête des origines de la chevalerie et donne ainsi les clés de lecture de l'univers chevaleresque.
