This is a fragment of a copy of van Dyck's portrait of 1632. Originally a double portrait, the painting would have included Charles I's wife, Queen Henrietta-Maria. An avid art collector, Charles I lured many important artists, including van Dyck and Rubens, from the Continent to England. Charles I was beheaded in 1649; however, the monarchy was later restored in 1660 by his son, Charles II.
