The story: The Byzantine chain has many names around the world: bird cage, Royal chin France, Peruvian chain in South America or Fool’s Dilemma in English. The term “Byzantine” used to describe this intricate and sophisticated type of link would refer more to the complexity of the mesh than to any geographical origin.
