A medieval game show? No, but the term 'Wheel of Fortune' does have its origin in the medieval concept of fate, as depicted in this vintage engraving. A two-faced woman spins the wheel with a king and others mounted to it, representing the random outcome of chance. Meanwhile, the actual king sits in his throne with head hanging low as he learns the fate of his kingdom. Engraved by C. Maradan after a 15th century manuscript collection of works by Boethius (480 - 525), it was published in an 1878 history of the Middle Ages and is now in the public domain. Digital restoration by Steven Wynn Photography.
