Stadtholder William IV is shown as Captain-General and Admiral-General of the Dutch Republic. He wears the decorations of the Order of the Garter. Despite all the trappings of power, the French painter Aved did not succeed in depicting him as an impressive ruler. The portrait was finished in the year that the prince died.
