Portrait of François II of France (improperly called Charles IX by the title); a boy seen full-length, turned to right with head seen in profile, his left hand resting on the hilt of his sword, the other one on his hip, wearing armour with codpiece and a laurel wreath; in the upper right corner, the arms of France

- Curator's comments
- From the same series as 1884,0412.20.
Although the title identifies the figure as Charles IX of France, this is actually a portrait of his brother and predecessor François II; the title appears to be a later addition: traces of a former title (reading 'François Deux...') can be still seen on the shaded part of the step the sitter is standing on.
