Ah Thanks Pen!
Now I had had a thought about these hats- especially the Turbaned Monkey.
A turban is an obscure oriental headdress- we know more about these days than in Medieval times.
It was first found mentioned at the end of the 14th Century in Spain, from the gifts given to a Jewish boy- a fine linen Tiraz Turband from India. It was a 'noble Crown' of a Caliph and ceremonial for a wedding. In India it would have been called a Pagri.
The English name derives from Turband, tolibant or tulipant, all variations of the flower tulip, suggested by the design of the folds. It is not a religious Turban or even a spiritual headdress- it is a civil one, a political one.
The clearest attitude I can find to the Caliph's Turban- more rightly considered the Sultan's Crown was from
Manual II Paleologos (1391-1425) -that the siege of Constantinople -1422 the city’s great statesmen was heard to say “Better the Sultan’s turban than the cardinal’s hat”.
It seems to me that a monkey in a turban is somewhat later than we are thinking. Still working on it- as that problem with the word Bateleur and the eagle that was named the same.
