 Association for Historical Fencing (AHF) - Articles - The Grand Assault: Notes on Its History
Henry also mentions an Irish organization called the Knights of Tara, which held an annual meeting of amateurs, with a “diamond-cut sword” as the grand prize.  True to the later Grand Assault style, “this exhibition was always honored with the presence of the lord-lieutenant and ladies, and concluded with a ball in the evening.”
The grand assault proper developed in the late 1860’s and early 1870’s in tune with the economic and historical forces that gave birth to France’s gilded age, La Belle Epoque.
This is certainly no rarity, as the grand assaults are defined by their glamorous venues in addition to their illustrious crowds and participants.  The fencing critic Adolphe Tavernier mentions several assaults taking place at the Cirque D’Hiver and the Grand Hotel, as well as at the house of the prince A. de Chimay.
