LabelAnother version of this tapestry belongs to a set of five in the Schloss Ludwigsberg, Baden Württemberg, bearing the marks of Louis Hinart, first director of the royal tapestry manufactory of Beauvais. The subject of the set is unidentified, but may be a reweaving of a medieval chivalric romance on the Trojan War.
