When 1200 burgesses accompany the queen from St. Denis into the city, when damsels chorus their praises, when an allegorical castle is constructed at Chatelet with a figure of St. Anne lying upon a bed, with twelve young maidens wandering among symbolic animals (a hart, a lion, an eagle, symbolizing vulnerability and two forms of protective strength), when an effigy of Saladin's castle appears, to be attacked and defended by real knights, it is clear that the demonstration of bellicose prowess with deadly weapons has been overshadowed by the dramatic spectacle in which it has been embedded.
