The great success of Guido delle Colonne’s Historia Destructionis Troiae never dwindled during the medieval period, particularly in France. Amongst its French translations, two are particularly noticeable: the first by virtue of how closely it follows the source, the second, equally accurate, on account of its erudite and varied contributions which enrich the letter of its source. The examination of their differing features – in light of a particular episode of the Trojan legend – allows us to appreciate the diverse readings the matter of Troy inspired in different places and milieux.
