History of the Color Purple

The color purple in history was known for representing royalty. According to the History Channel it says “the color purples ties to king and queens date back to the ancient world, where it was prized for its bold hues and often reserved for the upper crest.” If you were able to obtain purple dyes this meant you were probably royalty. It was very high in demand and only the richest of people could wear this color. Everything made from purple dye was expensive even clothes. Royalty would often say that they were “born in purple” because of how rare, rich, and expensive it was.
