The course explores the architecture of the French chateau from the time of Charles VIII (1483–98) to the time of Henri III (1574–89) in its relationship to the social structure of the court, to the political and economic environments of late fifteenth- and sixteenth-century France, as well as in the context of warfare and territorial conquest at both the regional and national level.
