The Wheel of Fortune, whole folio The queen is in the centre of the wheel. The four figures of a king round the wheel are grasping, wearing, losing, and without a crown, referring to their ascent and descent. The fallen king drops his sceptre. The falling and fallen kings are bearded; an allusion to the ages of man. Image taken from Holkham Bible Picture Book. Originally published in England, circa 1320-1330.
