The overall meaning or message of this poem is not to push your luck.
The lady was lucky to have the love of the Count, but she wanted more glory. She threw her glove to see whether he would dare fetch it. If he were injured or killed she would gain glory by showing how valuable her affection was to the count. But her plan backfired, the Count rescued the glove, showing his bravery, but then rejected her love.
