Here is The Sun King, Louis XIV, radiating the glory of the monarchy in his gorgeous Blue, Gold and White ceremonial cape. It is covered with the Fleur de Lis of the Bourbon dynasty, while the interior is lined with ermine—every black dot the tip of a single animal’s tail.  Painting by Hyacinthe Rigaud in early 1700s.
