Manuscripts and Princes in Medieval and Renaissance Europe features 34 of the most important illuminated manuscripts, from the more than 1,000 digitised by the Europeana Regia project.
These rare and valuable books were once owned by Carolingian Emperors, French King Charles V and the Aragonese kings of Naples. You can zoom in on each manuscript, flip through it page by page and even compare two manuscripts.
