“There are many stories which show a jester as the only person who could counsel a stubborn king, and as such the myth of the court jester suggests that jesters could act as a check on the whimsical power of absolute monarchy. . . .” An excerpt from Fools Are Everywhere – The Court Jester Around the World by Beatrice K.
