Further information

There stands Anselm Adornes, Knight in the Scottish Order of the Unicorn, nude to his undershirt, bareheaded, barefooted. That morning of May, 19th 1477, he drags himself from banner to banner to beg for mercy from every Dean of the city of Bruges. How different was the solemn ceremony 10 years ago in which he was overwhelmed with favours by King James III of Scotland.The mighty Anselm Adornes, the aristocrat, wealthy alum businessman, governor of the city and guardian of the Bruges’ leper house. And still, just one political move is enough to trample on his honour and grace. The brave knight Anselm, who some years ago safely returned from a pilgrimage to Jerusalem, who, as an influential negotiator, defied the pirates of Gdansk, who finished building his own Holy Sepulchre Chapel in Bruges, and now … remain only disgrace and despair.
