Description

Marionette puppets were used as a form of entertainment for the ruler and his subjects. They took the place of actors during this time. Although used for entertainment, the marionettes were used as a conduit between the ruler and his townspeople. His subjects would ask the puppeteer to mention, in an implied manner, an upcoming event or warning to the ruler. A human speaking to the ruler about these terms would be seen as inappropriate.
