And 'the portrait of Godfrey of Bouillon, governor of Jerusalem during the First Crusade or Crusade of the Barons. In this print the artist (probably Antonio Tempesta) calls him King, but really Godfrey refused to be proclaimed king in the city of Jesus Christ and instead assumed the title of "Defender of the Holy Sepulchre." The fact caption reads: "Dear King Duce and of which it echoes the cards in the name Tasso august, because Saraceno took again the unjust de l'humanato God the holy tomb." Original in good condition, on laid paper with watermark "anchor".
