About Les Cavaliers
The Meaning Behind Les Cavaliers:
Cavalier (/ˌkævəˈlɪər/) was a name first used by Parliamentarians as a term of abuse for the wealthier male Royalist supporters of King Charles I and his son Charles II during the English Civil War, the Interregnum, and the Restoration (1642 –c. 1679). It was later adopted by the Royalists themselves. Although it originally related to political and social attitudes and behavior, of which clothing was a very small part, it has subsequently become strongly identified with the fashionable clothing of the court at the time.
