A Norman Knight and his Lady

A Norman Knight and his Lady

This image of a “Norman knight with his lady” is from page 199 of Joel August Rogers‘ book “Sex and Race, Volume I: Negro-Caucasian Mixing in All Ages and All Lands: The Old World.” It is found in the  eighteenth chapter entitled “The Mixing of Whites and Blacks in the British Isles.” The portrait originates from the The Wriothesley Garter book, a part of the British Royal Collection.  The book was gathered by Thomas Wriothesley, the son and successor of   Garter King of Arms John Writhe.
