Now, the jester in the photo is a bit of a mystery to me. He is peering out of one of the 'windows' of a tall ship (the Batavia), which (by my knowledge) never conveyed a monarch. Perhaps he had been hired by the captain to provide entertainment to him and his men while they were on their way to the other side of the world. If that were the case he probably perished near Arnhem Land, Australia on the Batavia's maiden voyage.
