Codex Manesse - 14th C.

1300 Germany: Color-Coded World. In a successful warring King's House (red and purple pillars) the Queen shares joy and felicity (matching garb) with a young Duke (green), bestowing her Favour as the horn calls to battle. She is elevated and protected by the King (purple railing). Both are surrounded/supported by King's attendants (purple). Each is also encouraged by a spirited, perhaps irresponsible (red) companion who anticipates the best. Fool points to troubadour singing of courtly love.
