Politics and world events


Although the church expressly forbade such a bachelorette party at the Council of Tours in 1163 , on January 28th at the court of the French King Charles VI. held a charivari on the occasion of the wedding of a lady of honor of Queen Isabeau . During the day there are parties and banquets to which the entire court is invited, in the evening a ball is on the program in the Hôtel Saint-Paul : A fire at this festival, later known as the Bal des Ardents, kills four friends of the French King Charles VI. who thereupon - at times mentally disturbed since the previous year - finally falls into madness. A few days later he passed the reign to his brother Ludwig von Orléans . But the real power again lies with a Regency Council, consisting of Philip the Bold of Burgundy and Jean de Valois, duc de Berry .
