Oil on oak panel in a carved wood and composition frame.
A jewel like object, this rare and enchanting portrait of William III is only 26 inches tall including the frame, and the image itself a mere 10 inches.
The magnificent frame is composed of trophies of arms, as befits the martial prowess of the king; the bottom panel shows a cavalry officer on the battlefield.
Based on a large portrait by Sir Godfrey Kneller, this image shows William in his Garter robes with the Garter emblem of St George on his chest.
WILLIAM III (Also known as William of Orange) 1650 – 1702. Stadtholder of the Netherlands (r.1672-1702) and King of England (r.1689-1702), reigning jointly with Mary II (r.1689-94). He became king after the Glorious Revolution, securing the victory of Parliament and the Protestant cause. In international politics he was in the forefront of opposition to the expansionist ambitions of Louis XIV.

In 1688 he was made Principal Painter to the King and was knighted in 1692 and a made a baronet in 1715.
