The King (from the Tarocchi, series E: Conditions of Man, #8)
This engraving is part of the Tarocchi group marked with the letter "E," and named Conditions of Man. This series outlines the social and hierarchical order of ten characters (Beggar, Servant, Artisan, Merchant, Gentleman, Knight, Doge King, Emperor, and Pope), starting from the lower grade and ending with the most important one.
Here, Re (The King) is shown as a full-length crowned male figure, facing front. The ruler is seated on his throne, and holds a scepter with his right hand.
