The Pageant of the Golden Tree (Praalstoet van de Gouden Boom) takes place only every five years in Bruges (Brugge), Belgium. In 1301 Johanna I of Navarra, the second wife of King Philip (the fair) of France, was received gloriously in Bruges and according to the legend shouted: "I thought I was the only empress, but I can see them here by hundreds!"
