Note Byles: “The first de Croy of note was the Seigneur de Renty, Jean de Croy, who was killed at Agincourt in 1415. His third son, Jean, became the first Seigneur de Chimay, and was made a count by Charles the Bold in 1473, the year of his death. As literary adviser to Philip the Good, he
began to form a library, while his son, Philip, Seigneur de Sempy, who died in 1482, was one of the chief patrons of the Flemish illuminators. Philip de Croy also acquired many MSS. from Charles the Bold, in which he inserted, among the borders and miniatures, his motto, " Moy seul," the de Croy arms with the eldest son's " lambel d'azur," and in many places a small three-coloured bell. The last device alludes to his custom of hanging small bells on his horse's armour when on active service. In MS. 10493 the de Croy arms appear inside the large initial letters on ff. 1, 2, 75 verso, and 86. The initial E on f. 2 contains the bell in the upper part and the arms in the lower. Philip's son and successor, Charles de Croy, became Prince de Chimay in 1486, when Chimay was made a principality by Maximilian. About eighty of the MSS. of this famous line of book-lovers are extant, and fifty-four of them are in the Bibliotheque Royale at Brussels.”
