THE LIFE OF MONSTRELET;

WITH

AN ESSAY ON HIS CHRONICLES,

BY M. DACIER.

MATERIALS for the biography of Monstrelet are still more scanty than for that of Froissart. The most satisfactory account both of his life and of the continuators of his history is contained in the “ Mémoires de l'Académie de Belles-Lettres," vol. xliii. p. 535, by M. Dacier :

“We are ignorant of the birthplace of Enguerrand de Monstrelet, and of the period when he was born, as well as of the names of his parents. All we know is, that he sprang from a noble family, which he takes care to tell us himself, in his introduction to the first volume of the Chronicles ; and his testimony is confirmed by a variety of original deeds, in which his name is always accompanied with the distinction of noble man,' or ' esquire *.'

“ According to the historian of the Cambresis, Monstrelet was descended from a noble fainily settled in Ponthieu from the beginning of the twelfth century, where one of his ancestors, named Enguerrand, possessed the estate of Monstrelet in the year 1125,—but Carpentier does not name his authority for this. A contemporary bistorian (Matthieu de Couci, of whom I shall have occasion to speak in the course of this essay), who lived at Peronne, and who seems to have been personally acquainted with Monstrelet, positively asserts that this historian was a native of the county of the Boulonnois, without precisely mentioning the place of his birth. This authority ought to weigh much : besides, Ponthieu and the Boulonnois are so near to each other that a mistake on this point might easily have happened. It results from what these two writers say, that we may fix, his birthplace in Picardy.

“ M. l'abbé Carlier, however, in his ‘History of the Duchy of Valois,' claims this honour for his province, wherein he has discovered an ancient family of the same name,-a branch of which, he pretends, settled in the Cambresis, and he believes that from this branch sprung Enguerrand de Monstrelet. This opinion is advanced without proof, and the work of Monstrelet itself is sufficient to destroy it. He shows so great an affection for Picardy, in

• These deeds, and the greater part of others quoted M. Mutte, dean of Cambray, to M. de Foncemagne, who in these memoirs, are preserved in the Chartulary of lent them to M. Dacier. Cambray. Extracts from them were communicated by
