The Coronation of King Ladislaus of Poland (1633)

Illustration from a book celebrating the coronation of King Ladislaus of Poland in February of 1633. A rather rotund looking Ladislaus (presuming the figure is, in fact, the king) hovers in the clouds with the Latin words Ingenium Naturae on a banner above his head, literally translating as “natural talent”.
