Gustav Wertheimer (1847-1904) - The kiss of the siren
King Phillip II of Spain, Phillip I of Portugal, during the Iberian Union, in which he ruled both countries. Phillip was the heir to the Portuguese throne after the Death of King Sebastian of Portugal, who died without children.
I think I unintentionally made Portugal look younger than Spain orz, though it should be the opposite. I thought of this while on the Subway, and decided I wanted to try portraying Portugal and Spain like a proper Union under the same King, as opposed to an unwilling Portugal under Spanish control. See kids, this is what happens when you act all clever and marry off your royals to the point where your only heir is spanish. I have a feeling Portugal was hoping that Spain would be in the heirless situation and it ended up being him instead. The clothes might be innacurate ;u; I used Velazquez paintings as reference, but the cloaks were a bit too dark for me to figure out, and I was in a hurry drawing this.
