Gaston Fébus (1331-1391), Sun Prince
Gaston Fébus (1331-1391), Sun Prince

A colourful figure from the second half of the 14th century, Gaston III of Foix forged his own legend, naming himself "Fébus", meaning "Sun". He was a multifaceted character, a fine politician and outstanding administrator and also a scholar. A great reader and book-lover, Gaston owes his fame to the Livre de Chasse (Book of Hunting), of which numerous illustrated handwritten copies still remain. Centred around a major collection of these manuscripts, brought together thanks to exceptional loans from the Bibliothèque Nationale (French National Library), the exhibition will bring to life the Count's "bookshop", his places of residence and the luxurious lifestyle at his "Court at Orthez".
