Duke's council, he always preserved a relation of a special if uneasy kind with
him and the Duchess.1 The young men's preoccupation with the cares of estate
was agreeably interrupted in 1468 by their journey to Bruges in Princess

Importantly ... Her father laments the match even while he carries it out: “by
inevitable Reasons of State, I was constrained to sacrifice thee” to the duke, “who
is chill'd, with the Frost of seventy Winters” and who will unhappily “pluck the fair

festivity described it as 'according to ancient custom', there is no evidence to
suggest that the dukes had ever taken a hand in it before. Yet in subsequent
years Bonfire Sunday would become a key festival of the ducal regime. In 1699,
little more than a year after the French had yet again been obliged to retire, the
