Reading semiotically against the backdrop of medieval mirrors of princes, Arthurian narratives, and chronicles, this study examines how Ren©Øe d'Anjou (1409-1480), Geoffrey Chaucer's House of Fame (ca. 1375-1380), and Edward the Black Prince (1330-1376) explore fame's visual power.While very different in approach, all three individuals reject the classical suggestion that fame is bestowed and understand that particularly in positions of leadership, it is necessary to communicate effectively with audiences in order to secure fame. This sweeping study sheds light on fame's intoxicating butdeceptively simple promise of elite glory
