New artwork “Royal Hunt”
New artwork “Royal Hunt” is added to the site.
Under the reign of Charles the Great, hunting was the favorite occupation of aristocracy. Under the reign of the Carolingian dynasty hunting became a royal privilege and transformed into a complex theatrical performance.
Royal hunt in France is a unique phenomenon of the Middle Ages. Traditionally, hunters were horse-mounted accompanied by a kennel, or it was a ride to hounds to hunt on deer and other animals , or with specially trained falcons when hunting on pheasants, partridges and other birds.
Hunting supports ancient customs that are passed on from generation to generation and are preserved until nowadays.
