1. When it says the emperor drives out, does it mean he takes out his horse wagon and 'drive out' of his castle to show off his clothes? He goes out in his carriage - but he will be driven in it.
2. He had a coat for every hour of the day: now, is this sentence saying that he wore a different coat every hour? Yes- he has 24 coats so he could change every hour of the day.
3. "cabinet" - What's the context here? how is this word used? is the word used in a political sense? I didn't think the word cabinet was used in that sense when this story took place. In the old sense of a small, private room - similar to a study.
