The wife of the weak-willed Charles IV, on the contrary, was known as a strong and power-hungry woman. What can not be said about high morale.
It was in the era of Charles IV that everyone saw on the throne not godlike monarchs, but ordinary wicked people, which was expressed in an open expression of disrespect. Goya wrote loyal letters to the monarchs, but in the soul, apparently, he shared a common opinion. Behind the external pomposity of this portrait one can consider his true feelings.
