Heel fijn en leesbaar boek over het ontstaan van Bourgondië dat veel groter was in de Middeleeuwen dan ik ooit geweten heb, met een veel oudere geschiednis (vanaf ca. 500), alle hertogen van d sterk, hun ambities, leven en strijd om macht en of gebiedsuitbreiding. Wat ik erg leuk vond is de beschrijving en verklaring van wat we nu nog noemen “Bourgondisch leven” met veel eten, drinken en genieten van het leven. ( )

Een proeve van groot meesterschap' - Frits van Oostrom
'Vol cliffhangers en aangrijpende passages. Onweerstaanbaar' - Herman Pleij
De Bourgondiërs vertelt de geschiedenis van de vroege Nederlandse eenwording. Het is een wonderlijk relaas van ontbolsterende
steden, ontwakend individualisme en uitstervende ridderidealen. Van schizofrene koningen, doortastende hertogen en geniale kunstenaars.
Terwijl de Bourgondische hertogen met veldslagen, huwelijken en hervormingen de versnipperde Lage Landen tot één geheel smeedden, ontstonden onder hun impuls de onvergetelijke werken van Klaas Sluter, Jan van Eyck en Rogier van der Weyden.

Bart Van Loo's even spannende als leerrijke verkenning van de middeleeuwen groeit gaandeweg uit tot een wervelende cultuurgeschiedenis.
Meeslepend en erudiet vertelt hij waar wij vandaan komen. Als geen ander weet Van Loo bevlogenheid, humor en kennis van zaken te combineren.

This is a big huge book by a Flemish writer about the history of Burgundy in the time when it included the territory from Switzerland to Friesland and everywhere in between, most notably almost all of what is currently in Belgium. The downfall of Burgundy is treated in a couple of fiction books that I have read - Dorothy Dunnett has the Battle of Nancy in one of the later Niccolo books, and it's a central parallel timeline theme of Mary Gentle's Ash. But I confess I knew very little about it.

This first few chapters look at the emergence of Burgundy as an entity from the confusion of post-Roman Europe, but the meat of the book is an account of the century or so from 1369, when Philip the Bold married Margaret of Flanders and united the territories from Dijon to the North Sea, to the Battle of Nancy in 1477 in which Charles the Bold (Philip's great-grandson) was killed and Burgundy's pretensions came to an end. It's full of incidental detail, the assassination of John the Fearless, Joan of Arc, the Feast of the Pheasant; Van Loo also takes us through the great art of the day and the politics behind it - the big names here are Jan van Eyck and Rogier van der Weyden.

If the Burgundians had had better luck, the kingdom might have survived as a single territory to the present day. The presence of so many great cities in the territory meant that there was an early tradition of civic engagement and government. The variety of languages spoken meant that innovative policies about linguistic governance needed to be worked out sooner rather than later. Revolts tended to end with settlements involving greater rights for citizens rather than repression (though not always). The argument is made that some of the foundations of the modern state were laid in medieval Burgundy.

I must say that for me I found the overlapping sovereignties of the period rather reminiscent of today's situation in Belgium. My home is less than 5km from the linguistic frontier, which was only drawn in 1962 and became a provincial boundary only in 1995 when Brabant was divided. But at the same time we are only 10km from Tourinnes-le-Grosse, which was an exclave of the Prince-bishopric of Liège within the Duchy of Flanders for many years. The attempt to govern Belgium as a unitary state from 1830 to 1962 was the real historical anomaly.

Even after Nancy, it wasn't all over; Charles the Bold's daughter Margaret was of age and ruled well for five years until her death after a hunting accident in 1482, aged 25. Perhaps that is the real turning point. (And perhaps it's telling that historical narrative, including this one, tend to concentrate on the disaster of Nancy without reflecting that Margaret inherited most of her father's territories intact and the disintegration happened after her death, not his.)

A recently arrived diplomat told me a couple of days ago that he had been recommended this book as a good entry into the history of this part of the world. I think my advice would be to wait until there is an English translation. It's very good, but at 519 pages of detailed yet also idiomatic Dutch, it's a tough slog for the non-native speaker. ( )

Een sprankelende vertelling die begint in het jaar 406 en eindigt bij de dood van de laatste Bourgondiër Karel V.
In vijf zinderende hoofdstukken die een steeds kleinere periode omvatten ontstaat een prachtige historische compositie.
Wat een verteller ! ( )

Zonder twijfel één van de boeken die alvast een grote indruk hebben gemaakt
in 2019. Een absolute aanrader als je geïnteresseerd bent in de geschiedenis van de Lage Landen en Bourgondië. Meesterverteller en historicus.

Without doubt one of the books of 2019 - an absolute must read if you want to understand the history of the Low Lands and the Burgundian empire (Belgium - The Netherlands - Luxembourg- France) . Master storyteller and historian. ( )
