An advisor to King Charles, Jean de Daillon was a celebrated knight of France. He is perhaps most well known for being with Joan of Arc when she took Orleans on her historic quest. It was this retaking of Orleans that made him famous among the French. “Le Chevalier” depicts Jean de Daillon in his battle regalia astride his horse. The banner he’s carrying shows a wolf, his insignia. The original tapestry was ordered by de Daillon himself from Wuillaume Desreumaulx of Tournai. However, he never lived to see it completed. Instead, the completed work was delivered to his widow in 1483, two years after his death. Today, “Le Chevalier” is on display at Montacute House in England. This tapestry is lined and comes with a tunnel for easy hanging.
