Culture is such an interesting topic. No matter the society every culture is immensely rich and largely diverse. In traditional Yoruba society a king does not enter a gathering anonymously but is heralded with much pomp and pageantry. The richer the king, the louder the herald. This is similar in every empire where there are kings and queens in authority. I never use to understand what the fuss was all about as a kid while watching movies that had royalty in them. Remember Coming to America?...Hilarious! I still laugh hard at the scene of the maidens pouring rose petals on the floor for the prince to walk on. A king's attire and entourage is a reflection of his status. He must be resplendent in both carriage and appearance irrespective of the occasion. The larger the entourage, the greater the king. All the display of opulence and splendour are part of his grandeur presence. There must be no mistake about a king's identity, it speaks for itself. God's kingship is evident by His authority, grace, love, mercy, presence, wisdom; you can't but notice Him. "Who is like to you oh Lord, among the gods? who is like you, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises,doing wonders" Deutronomy 3:24.
