King Frederik V of Denmark was on the throne for twenty years in the 18th century. I’m realizing court painters (like Carl Gustaf Pilo, his work of Frederik seen here) are very similar to the Witney Port characters of the world…a terrifying waste of space, really just people trying to enjoy themselves in a royal culture.
