I was going to suggest that the Emperor is maybe the best polar *opposite* to the Fool: rational, governing, controlling, concerned with power and dominion. Now I've had a quick look throught the pack I've discovered something else: I *think* the only two cards also containing the eagle are the Emperor and the Hanged Man. I doubt if Liz Greene was working at that kind of level; you can try and over-interpret and it becomes contrived and not very useful.

But there it is: 3 cards with the eagle, and IMO two of them are polar opposites.

(I like the Bacchus and Ariadne painting too. I enjoy seeing it when I'm in London and visit the National Gallery).
