It was right before the Christmas Eve of 1429 and there was a shadow standing in the dawn light. Yes it was Duke Philippe III, The Order of The Golden Fleece’s Founder. He was waiting for his Love, Princess Isabelle of Portugal and her fleet.
Princess Isabelle arrived to the harbour with the ringing of church bells. The Duke kneeled down and presented his sword to her as a symbol of love and courtesy, while thanking god for the blessing. The news of their love spread widely throughout all corners of the city. A great number of artisans and masters had dedicated their lifetime trades to this, the wedding of the century.
The most and powerful nobles and knights in Europe were treated to the luxury and beauty of this extraordinary evening in the glamorous palace of glass. While the soft music played and the royal couple danced, they glanced over and smiled at one artisan, who knew he had delighted them all, and in this glorious moment, Alpes d’Or had transformed chocolate into a delicate art form
