Abstract
The article deals with the history of memory, that the French courtier, maître-d’hotel of the royal court at the turn of the 15th—16th centuries, Rigault d’Oureille has left about himself. In his castle Villeneuve-Lambron in Auvergne there are a lot of various inscriptions preserved: on the walls, the wooden and stone panels, on tapestries, in the books and other objects. These inscriptions mention not only his clanship, but his own personality: we found everywhere his name, titles, merits, mentions of the events of his life. The article considers closely the original frescoes on the walls in his castle, accompanied by moralizing poems.
