Rank does have its privilege - 1479 Caesar in the snow...
From the British Library, Bruges manuscript, Royal 17 F. II, illustrated by the Master of Edward IV. This manuscript contains La grant hystoire Cesar, and was made in 1479. F. 116v shows the winter march of Caesar's army, with foot-soldiers seen shoveling the snow from under the path of Caesar's horse.
