During the history of mankind, fashion was always a subject of controversy, and Medieval Fashion followed the rule. It is a known fact that the Great Charlemagne did not like luxury in daily life. His household officers did not dare to show themselves in any clothes but those made of leather, wool or cloth. For had they made their appearance dressed in silk and ornaments, he would have sharply reproved them. However he used to make the most magnificent display on the occasions of political or religious festivals, when the imperial dignity with which he was invested required pompous ceremonial and richness of attire. During the reign of the other Carolingian kings, amidst political troubles, internal wars, and social disturbances, people had neither time or inclination for inventing anything dress related, so the Medieval Fashion hardly changed.
