[1702.]
Engraving, platemark 275 x 230mm (10¾ x 9"); very large margins.
Carlo III (1486-1553), duke of Savoy, often called 'il Buono' ('the good'). Carlo was a younger son of of Filippo II (see ref. 41068), who having spent much of his life without possessions, unexpectedly became duke shortly before his death owing to the death in childhood of Carlo II (see ref. 41067). This made Carlo duke following the death of his father's half-brother Filiberto II in 1504. After France invaded Savoy in 1535 and held almost all of Carlo's possessions, he spent the rest of his life in near-exile. After F.J. de Lange, it is one of the 33 portraits of the Dukes of Savoy engraved by Georges Tasnière for 'Augustae Regiæque Sabaudæ domus arbor gentilitia', 1702.

The Infante Carlos of Spain (1788-1855), son of Charles IV of Spain and first of the Carlist claimants to the Spanish throne. Shortly before his death, Carlos' brother king Ferdinand VII had changed the law (the 'Pragmatic Sanction') to permit his daughter Isabella to succeed to the throne. Carlos' claim to the throne was founded upon the illegality of the Pragmatic Sanction. From this dispute the First Carlist War took place in the 1830s, only definitively concluding in 1840, by which time Carlos had left Spain for France. From a series of portraits of European monarchs by lithographer Antoine Maurin dit l'aîné (1793 - 1860).
