oil on panel, h 90cm × w 69cm More details

This sitter is probably Louis of Nassau, an illegitimate son of Maurice. He is depicted wearing a gold medal bearing a portrait of his father. This medal was struck to celebrate the Capture of Grave in 1602. Louis was born at that time and is eighteen months old in this portrait. Did Maurice dedicate his victory to his youngest scion?
