The part played by some minor characters in Olivier de la Marche's 'Memoires'
Optional Fields
It would be wrong to assume that Olivier de La Marche's Memoires do not include minor characters. They can be observed in several passages such as the account of the 1443 Luxembourg war or that of the 1453 Poucques and Schendelbeke battles. The point of such characters is to give particular definition to wider events; they also provide some insights into the thoughts and fate of princes and dukes, and they indicate de La Marche's own presence in the text. Ultimately it can be said that the minor characters give the writer an added means of discribing major characters.
