Many kings, princes and other leaders came over from Britain; the sea was a unifying rather than divisive factor. In the traditions relating to the settlement of Brittany by the Bretons there are several kingdoms of this kind. A number of legends and lives of Breton saints contain references to the close political ties between religious communities in Wales and Brittany. The close proximity resulted in possessions on both sides of the Channel by some religious orders. Conomor , killed fighting Clotaire I , king of the Franks , is referred to in stories from both Britain and Brittany, he would have been a British military leader, guarding the Channel from attacks by pirates in alliance with Childebert I , son of Clovis.
Situated to the north east of Brittany, the earliest princes are mentioned in several Lives of the Saints ; the three Armorican principalities were all subservient to the King of Brittany. Until the reign of Jonas, the rulers of Domnonia were titled princes. After that, they supply the Kings of the Bretons, Domnonia itself was elevated as a result. Fracan Riwal I. Their ability to remain independent of both count and duke was due to their remoteness in the extremity of the Armorican peninsula. Unlike their Breton neighbours they did not participate in the Norman conquest of England in Count Harvey, did participate on the side of Stephen of Blois in the nineteen years of civil war in England called The Anarchy ; the viscounts fought with the Duke of Brittany in attempts to maintain their independence.
They had always had the right of wreck , that is, a monopoly on shipwrecks and their cargoes on the coasts, they had the right to draw up testaments and to dispense with alms and make arrangements for debt-payment freely.

Brittany and the Angevins: Province and Empire, — Cambridge: Cambridge University Press , ISBN Polychrome Polychrome is the "practice of decorating architectural elements, etc. Some early polychrome pottery has been excavated on Minoan Crete such as at the Bronze Age site of Phaistos.
In ancient Greece sculptures were painted in strong colors; the paint was limited to parts depicting clothing, so on, with the skin left in the natural color of the stone. But it could cover sculptures in their totality; the painting of Greek sculpture should not be seen as an enhancement of their sculpted form but has the characteristics of a distinct style of art. For example, the pedimental sculptures from the Temple of Aphaia on Aegina have been demonstrated to have been painted with bold and elaborate patterns, amongst other details, patterned clothing; the polychrome of stone statues was paralleled by the use of materials to distinguish skin and other details in chryselephantine sculptures, by the use of metals to depict lips, etc.
An early example of polychrome decoration was found in the Parthenon atop the Acropolis of Athens. By the time European antiquarianism took off in the 18th century, the paint, on classical buildings had weathered off. Thus, the antiquarians' and architects' first impressions of these ruins were that classical beauty was expressed only through shape and composition, lacking in robust colors, it was that impression which informed neoclassical architecture.
However, some classicists such as Jacques Ignace Hittorff noticed traces of paint on classical architecture and this came to be accepted; such acceptance was accelerated by observation of minute color traces by microscopic and other means, enabling less tentative reconstructions than Hittorff and his contemporaries had been able to produce.
An example of classical Greek architectural polychrome may be seen in the full size replica of the Parthenon exhibited in Nashville, Tennessee , US. Throughout medieval Europe religious sculptures in wood and other media were brightly painted or colored, as were the interiors of church buildings. The exteriors of churches were painted as well. Exposure to the elements and changing tastes and religious approval over time acted against their preservation; the "Majesty Portal" of the Collegiate church of Toro is the most extensive remaining example, due to the construction of a chapel which enclosed and protected it from the elements just a century after it was completed.
With the arrival of European porcelain in the 18th century, brightly colored pottery figurines with a wide range of colors became popular. Polychrome brickwork is a style of architectural brickwork which emerged in the s and used bricks of different colors in patterned combination to highlight architectural features.
It was used to replicate the effect of quoining and to decorate around windows. Early examples featured banding, with examples exhibiting complex diagonal, criss-cross, step patterns, in some cases writing using bricks. In the twentieth century there were notable periods of polychromy in architecture, from the expressions of Art Nouveau throughout Europe, to the international flourishing of Art Deco or Art Moderne , to the development of postmodernism in the latter decades of the century.
During these periods, stone, tile and metal facades were designed with a focus on the use of new colors and patterns, while architects looked for inspiration to historical examples ranging from Islamic tilework to English Victorian brick. In the s and s architects working with bold colors included Robert Venturi , Michael Graves , James Stirling , among others. Polychrome building facades rose in popularity as a way of highlighting certain trim features in Victorian and Queen Anne architecture in the United States.
The rise of the modern paint industry following the American Civil War helped to fuel the use of multiple colors. The polychrome facade style faded with the rise of the 20th century's revival movements, which stressed classical colors applied in restrained fashion and, more with the birth of modernism , which advocated clean, unornamented facades rendered in white stucco or paint.
Polychromy reappeared with the flourishing of the preservation movement and its embrace of the excesses of the Victorian era and in San Francisco, California in the s to describe its abundant late-nineteenth-century houses; these earned the endearment'Painted Ladies', a term that in modern times is considered kitsch when it is applied to describe all Victorian houses that have been painted with period colors. John Joseph Earley developed a "polychrome" process of concrete slab construction and ornamentation, admired across America.
In the Washington, D. Locranon Parish close The enclos paroissial or Parish close of Locronan comprises the parish church with adjoining chapel and a calvary. The article will cover the nearby chapelle Notre-Dame-de-Bonne-Nouvelle.

Following a couple of somewhat lighter weeks in the Specialty space, this weekend is really ramped up with star-lead limited release awards contenders vying for box office recognition. The company became involved with Working Title, directed by Josie Rourke, early on. Queen of France at 16, Mary is widowed at She defies pressure to remarry and instead returns to her native Scotland to reclaim her rightful throne.
Contrary to earlier accounts, — and based on research by John Guy, whose book, Queen of Scots: The True Life of Mary Stuart , the script is based on — Mary is seen as a capable politician and leader who wanted an alliance with her cousin Elizabeth. Mary fights to govern her unruly kingdom at a time when female monarchs are reviled as monstrous. To secure their thrones, the two Queens make very different choices about marriage and children. Betrayal, rebellion and conspiracies within each court imperil both Queens, driving them apart as each woman experiences the bitter cost of power.
The company is expecting an initial art house crowd as well as younger females to drive the film in its launch starting Friday. Focus said that when it first became involved with the project, they could not have anticipated societal forces that would make the story of the two monarchs more relevant.
