The Lord of Misrule was the "Saturnalia Princeps", or master of ceremonies who participated in capricious behavior, practical jokes, chaos and absurdity, similar in concept to the medieval Feast of Fools.

Saturnalia was a festival of light leading to the winter solstice, with the abundant presence of candles symbolizing the quest for knowledge and truth.The renewal of light and the coming of the new year was celebrated at the Dies Natalis of Sol Invictus, the "Birthday of the Unconquerable Sun," on December 25.

Roman mythology of the Golden Age of Saturn's reign differed from the Greek tradition. Saturn arrived in Italy "dethroned and fugitive",but brought agriculture and civilization and became a king. As the Augustan poet Vergil described it, "he gathered together the unruly race" of fauns and nymphs "scattered over mountain heights, and gave them laws. Under his reign were the golden ages men tell of: in such perfect peace he ruled the nations." (source: Wikipedia)
