Catherine of Braganza, Queen consort of England, Scotland and Ireland

Second half of the XVII century. Oil on canvas. Not on display

Catherine of Braganza (1638 -1705) was queen consort of England, of Scotland and of Ireland from 1662 to 1685, as the wife of King Charles II. This canvas is one of a group of portraits collected by María Luisa de Orleans (1662-1689), first wife of Carlos II of Spain, which would become part of the Royal Collection. Some of these paintings must have decorated the Queen´s Gallery in the Alcázar (Madrid), a representation space where the Queen launched a decorative and iconographic program of exaltation of her dynasty. Others would be portraits of smaller relatives, generally of bust, that the sovereign would receive as a gift from them and that would decorate the private rooms of her room.

The presence in this gallery of portraits of members of the English Royal Family would be justified by the ties, relatives of María Luisa on the maternal side, since his mother Enriqueta de Inglaterra (P2400) was the sister of Charles II (1630-1685) and Jacobo II (1633-1701). This presence would be perfectly justified because it is an official space where it tries to highlight, more than the emotional bond, the dynastic importance of the sovereign and its connections with the Royal Houses.
