The Field of the Cloth of Gold – Universal Peace

Royal Armouries commissioned two video stories from Extra Credits to tell the story of the Field of Cloth of Gold.

  1. Universal Peace
  2. Royal Frenemies

When people think of the age of knights and kings, there’s one image that comes forward as readily as shining armour and that’s the tournament! And this particular tournament will go down in history as one of the most lavish and expansive affairs as a way to broker peace between Henry the VIII of England and Francis I of France. The two kings were locked in a bitter rivalry and were determined to outshine (and outspend) the other.
