This chapter explores the different elements of royal and princely entries, examining each of the different components of a formal entry. These elements include the reception of the king, the entrance to the city, the procession through the city, and the ceremonies at the church. Common to all the entries and royal or princely visits was the reception outside the city. This reception heralded the coming of a ruler or visiting prince, and, at their most basic level, represent an act of courtesy. Meanwhile, the symbolic moment when the royal personage actually entered the city through its main gate was laden with important symbolic and political meanings. This is followed by a regal procession through the city and the royal entry's conclusion at the cathedral or the town's main church.
