Charlemagne' worn by Louis XIV
Lots of leg, high heels, big hair: wow! This famous portrait by Hyacinthe Rigaud
(1701) shows the Sun King in fashionable modern dress, incongruously wearing the
sword of Charlemagne to make an obvious point about political continuity and similarity
of careers. See the page on this portrait in the great Hungarian 'Web Gallery
of Art' site here.
