  • Here is the story of a Picard soldier, subject of Maximilian, Duke of Austria - the grandfather of Charles V - who also reigned over Flanders.
  • The Picards wish to reconquer Burgundy annexed by Louis the XIth following the marriage of Marie de Bourgogne, daughter of Charles the Bold, with the said Maximilian.
  • This song appears in manuscript 12744 of the National Library of France, with the melody and its four verses. François-Auguste Gevaert (1828-1908) harmonized it just as vividly as the text he modernized.
  • Three additional verses seem to be later and an anonymous arrangement for four voices without words was edited by the Venetian printer Ottaviano Petrucci in 1503.
