ca. 1666 Maria Theresa wife of Louis XIV, with her son, Dauphin Louis of France by Pierre Mignard (location unknown to gogm)

Queen Maria Theresa is in full royal dress with every part of her clothing adorned with jewels in this Mignard portrait from about 1665. Wikipedia dates this 1661, but the Dauphin looks to be about five in this portrait and she married in 1660. The Dauphin also looks older than he did in the previous 1665 image. The Dauphin died in 1711, his father in 1715.
