Sword 'of 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.
