Comus--"King's" Float
Actually, the Mistick Krewe of Comus does not have kings since Comus was a god, not a mere mortal monarch. Traditionally, the identity of Comus is a secret. His queen in 1907, Adele Penrose, was the daughter of George Penrose, a former Treasurer of the City of New Orleans and the Captain of the Mistick Krewe! In the year following her reign, she married Harris Phelps Ralston, an officer with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
