Ruling dynasties often exploit pomp and ceremony with the use of. Marcus Julius Philippus Severus , also known as Philippus II , Philip II and Philip the Younger (238 249) was the son and heir of the Roman Emperor Philip the Arab by his wife Roman Empress Marcia Otacilia Severa. According to numismatic evidence, he had a sister called Julia Severa or Severina, whom the ancient Roman sources do not mention. When his father became emperor in 244 he was appointed Caesar. Philippus was consul in 247 and 248. His father was killed in battle by his successor Decius in 249. When news of this death reached Rome, he was murdered by the Praetorian Guard. He died in his mother’s arms. When he died, he was eleven years old. Leadership cadres use symbols to reinforce their position power and provide a level of differentiation. Clothing frequently articulates rank or privilege, but accessories and external entities of varying functionality may also serve to mark out leaders – from finger rings to personal aircraft. Presidential symbols include many various insignia or other devices to denote a president’s position. Some symbols follow accepted constitutional or diplomatic standards: flags , sashes , entrance Marches or a medallion or necklace. The use of the symbols mostly occurs for domestic purposes. Examples of such symbols include the American presidential march ” Hail to the Chief “, and the presidential sashes worn by the presidents of Latin America nations. More practical, semi-symbolic features also abound: bodyguards may lurk semi-overtly; a head of state may use a special aircraft (see for example Air Force One). European presidents sometimes dress archaically for formal occasions. Such special clothing sets them apart – and may well militate against women aspiring to such high office when tradition expects them to wear (say) knee-breeches. Ruling dynasties often exploit pomp and ceremony with the use of regalia : crowns , robes , orb and sceptres , some of which are reflections of formerly practical objects. The use of language mechanisms also support this differentiation with subjects talking of “the crown” and/or of “the throne ” rather than referring directly to personal names and items. Monarchies provide the most explicit demonstration of tools to strengthen the elevation of leaders. Thrones sit high on daises leading to subjects lifting their gaze (if they have permission) to contemplate the ruler. Architecture in general can set leaders apart: note the symbolism inherent in the very name of the Chinese imperial Forbidden City. The culture and legends around the ruling family may build on myths of divine-right and describe the ruler or the Son of Heaven. Court ceremonial highlights symbolic distance between a royal/imperial leader and follower, in a hierarchical system which cultivates a social system and power network around the monarch. Bowing and curtseying remain as examples of the self-abasement of hand-sucking , bowing and scraping, prostration , kowtowing and proskynesis formerly demanded. Sometimes colour plays a special role in advertising monarchical status: thus the once very rare pink/maroon dye color became a symbol reserved for imperial clothing – see purple. Archaic touches often symbolically recall a glorious historical past: thus horse-drawn carriages replace everyday motor-vehicles for royal state occasions, and courtiers and flunkeys in elaborate dress grant a sense of ancient distance. And monarchs emphasize the remaining traces of their divine right to rule when undergoing anointing at the hands of the Church during coronation ceremonies. Overlapping with and/or emulating royalty, a ruling class or an aristocracy can devote much of its energy into “keeping up appearances” and emphasizing the purity of noble blood by apartness. Symbolism can aid this process cheaply. A coat-of-arms (perhaps in the form of a banner or on note-paper) or the wearing of a sword can incur less expense than maintaining a stately home. The visible presence of servants or slaves reminds underlings of social distance. Patronage , especially of fashion , provides one of the most symbolic attributes of social leaders or would-be leaders. Apart from more elaborate uniform and their distinguishing marks (epaulettes , caps, medals), senior military officers may traditionally carry a baton or affect a similar substitute (such as a swagger stick or cane). Compare staff of office. Banners , pennants and guidons serve (or served in the past) to identify leaders as rallying-points or field command-posts. Traces of these continue on staff cars or on naval ships, for example: see broad pennant and compare the concept and origin of a flagship. Religious dignitaries often use vestments to emphasize the overall sacred nature of their organization. But some touches identify leaders and make them more imposing: a bishop’s mitre , for example, a cardinal’s red hat , a papal tiara or a papal ring. Less flamboyant faiths may use subtler symbolism to set religious leadership, holiness or saintliness apart: the understated dark vestments of the Protestant clergyman, the relatively unobtrusive clerical collar , or even the nakedness of a stereotypical Hindu ascetic fakir. Ownership of a harem has both practical and symbolic uses for leaders in traditional polygamous societies: harems spread genes and symbolically demonstrate wealth and status. Within such harems whole systems of symbolism may develop: the use of exclusive and inaccessible apartness, veiling , and the employment of eunuchs. Cultures which practise serial monogamy feature harem-analogous symbolism in the flaunting of trophy wives. Items such as codpieces may suggest the assumed superiority of one gender-role over another: or symbolic leadership (implied by implied potency) within patriarchal structures. A slightly less extreme example, but one more common in modern times, expresses power relationships (and thus leadership symbolism) through the use of the phrase “wearing the trousers “. Ancient Egyptian pharaohs used a stylised artificial labdanum -soaked goats-hair beard as one of the regalia of rulership: a clear case of associating a male attribute with leadership.
