Simon Vostre: The King

Pope Shepherdess

By Simon Vostre. In this version from 1502, parts of the dialogue from the Danse Macabre of Paris is included, but only for the first of the three dancers on each page. In this case the two groups of 4 lines at the bottom, starting with Venez noble roy couronne and Mais maintenant toute haultesse, are Death's greeting to the king.
