In 1409 Pierre Salmon created the Dialogues, an illuminated manuscript, for Charles VI of France. The miniature of David and Solomon, found in the Dialogues, compared King Charles VI to the two Old Testament Kings of Israel. An exploration of this comparison reveals the inability of the king of France to rule his kingdom. Salmon purposefully brought this comparison to the attention of Charles VI to encourage the king to repent of his sins in order to restore his health and the political stability of France.
