Maria de' Medici (1573-1642). Echtgenote van Hendrik IV, koning van Frankrijk (easel painting (painting by form); Frans (II) Pourbus (Antwerpen 1569-12-21 - Parijs); 1590/1620; Rijksmuseum (Amsterdam, North Holland, Netherlands); SK-A-870; RM001.collect.5100)
Note: The queen is portrayed in her full regalia. Everything here emphasises her royal status: the crown, her ermine robes and the canopy. This official portrait was made in the studio of the painter Frans Pourbus II. It is a copy of the portrait in the Louvre in Paris. The queen is Marie de Médicis (1573-164), a member of the renowned Italian family and wife of the King of France, Henry IV (1553-1610), whom she married in 1600. Henry IV was an ally of the Dutch Republic in the struggle against Spain. In 1638 Marie de Médicis, now a widow, visited Amsterdam, where she was received with great ceremony. For the occasion Joachim van Sandrart painted a militia painting in which she is also portrayed.
