The common description of a jester is a person who was employed by a European Monarch to provide entertainment and tell jokes. There were two types of jesters, or fools. The first type was a natural fool that was moronic and nit-witted and could not help what he said. The second type was the licensed fool that the courts gave leeway too. Jesters held a freedom of speech privilege. They were one of the very few people in the court that could speak their mind freely and use humor to joke about the nobles, ladies and lords without causing offense.
