This magnet pictures one of several portraits by Diego Velazquez (1599-1660) of Hapsburg king, Philip IV (1605-1665).  Philip ruled Spain from 1621 until his death and Portugal until 1640 when it declared independence from Spain.*  Philip inherited his kingdoms from his father, Philip III.

His reign included the Thirty Years War that erupted as a Protestant vs Catholic conflict and was continued as part of the ongoing power battle between France and the House of Hapsburg.

Philip's court artist, Spaniard Diego Velazquez (1599-1660), is considered one of the most important painters in the Spanish Golden Age.

  Spanish artist, Diego Velazquez

 

*  Philip never set foot in the country so it's not surprising if the citizens felt no loyalty to Spain.
