The True Story Of Roland The Farter

image credit

Roland, court minstrel to 12th century English king Henry II, probably had many talents. But history has recorded only one. Referred to variously Rowland le Sarcere, Roland le Fartere, Roland le Petour, and Roland the Farter, Roland really had one job in the court.

Every Christmas, during the court's riotous pageant, Roland performed 'Unum saltum et siffletum et unum bumbulum', a dance that ended with 'one jump, one whistle, and one fart,'executed simultaneously.
