On the basis of the illumination, the manuscript could have been produced either in Rouen (for use elsewhere) or in Paris. An 18th-century note on f. iii verso states that it was produced in the 14th century, belonged to the Comte d'Angouleme, who gave it to his wife Louise de Savoie, upon whose death it passed to Marguerite de Valois, Queen of Navarre ... The manuscript is hence sometimes called the "Hours of Marguerite de Valois" or "Marguerite de Valois' Prayer Book" ...
