Though the folly of monarchs has been legendary -- and, as examples such as Caligula and Nero show only too clearly, almost invariably highly perilous as well -- there have also been, throughout history, princes whose gifts extended far beyond those of government and representation; and who were not only patrons of literature and the arts but participated in these themselves, often with considerable talent.
