[en] One of the last writings attributed to Antoine de La Sale is a diptych of two short tales designed to console a bereaved mother by providing her with two examples of women in comparable situations. This chapter analyses one of the two tales, which is presented as an eye-witness report by La Sale and which focuses on the Portuguese court, thus inviting the reader to see it as a memoir also intended for the duchess of Burgundy, Isabella of Portugal.
