A nice confirmation of the existence of arming chains depicted in this codex.

I happen to have both a pdf version of Chronica and a compilation of all images in it. Quality is reasonably good, PM me if you're interested.

Martin,

Welcome to the forum.
You could upload a few images from the chronicle, especially if the images have better resolution than from Wiki Commons. For example the first one:

King Louis I of Hungary with his court

Or the Battle of Rozgony:
