William Bruges (c. 1375 – 9 March 1450) was an English officer of arms. He is best remembered as the first person appointed to the post of Garter King of Arms, which is currently the highest heraldic office in England.
The Bust of Charlemagne is a reliquary in the form of the bust of Charlemagne made around 1350, which contains the king’s skullcap. The reliquary is part of the Late Medieval treasure kept in the Aachen Cathedral Treasury. It is one of the most significant examples of Gothic goldwork and the best-known example of a reliquary bust anywhere. The reliquary is an idealised image, not an actual portrait of Charlemagne.(Click on the image. It’s breathtaking.)
