Abstract

This article focusses on the famous fourteenth-century fresco paintings by Simone Martini in the Chapel of Saint Martin and in the north transept of the Lower Church of San Francesco at Assisi, as well as the less well-known imagery of the stained glass window in the Chapel of Saint Louis in the same church. Noting the evidence for their association - to a greater or larger extent - with this Sienese painter, the article explores how effective all three works of art once were in terms of propaganda for the Angevin royal family of Naples, and most particularly for the dowager queen of Naples Mary of Hungary.
