    Maybe-click-to-enlarge image can be found here (along with a lengthy description), or at the only work, by this artist, so far, to appear in Mr. Melcher’s blog.

    Ferdinand IV, King of Naples (links show Wikipedia pages, his Google translated Italian Wikipedia page has more, click King of Naples in the translation, for the translated Italian Wikipedia Naples page), is shown, with a different coloration image (humongous image will take a while), and described by its current-location page (Bing translated).

    The other version can be found here (Google translated), along with its image.

    Both show him at age 9. His father, while ruling as Charles VII of Naples and Charles V of Sicily, had become King of Spain, as Charles III, and had to give up Naples.

    So, Ferdinand, at age 8, became Ferdinand IV, King of Naples, and Charles and his wife left for Barcelona. Ferdinand went on to also rule Sicily, as Ferdinand III, and Two Sicilies, as Ferdinand I.

    He and his wife had 18 children, but none ruled as children. The artist’s Wikipedia page (Google translated German Wikipedia page has more) and collection (more under Subcategories at each level).
