[en] Bernard Gui is known for his career as an inquisitor but he was also a prolific historian. His illustrated genealogical tree of the kings of France, revised over several decades in the early 14th c., foregrounds the anxieties and crises that affected the end of the direct Capetian line by stressing a single line of male succession. However, the reception of Bernard's Arbor in Avignon stresses the opposing idea, suggesting that genealogies are complex, discontinuous and multiple.
