fol. 142r: Bruges surrenders to the king of France (1382). In the aftermath of Rosebecque, Bruges opened its gates to the king of France on 28 November 1382. Charles VI, wearing his crown over his closed helm and dressed in a surcoat of the royal French arms of azure, semy of fleurs-de-lys, or (gold heraldic lilies powdering a blue field) is accompanied by a contingent of armed men whose lowered visors lend them a menacing air. Charles VI receives the submission of Bruges via the symbolic gesture of the handing over of the city’s keys, presented to him by the city’s magistrates.
