|Ferdinando de Medici, Konopiste castle|
Just I would like to share with you these three paintings by a Flemish painter Justus Sustermans, showing Ferdinando and Leopoldo de Medici - their father the ruler of Tuscany died in 1621 AD and brave mother became the regent for oldest son, Ferdinando.
|Leopoldo with his mother-the regent|
Here you'll find the story behind the costumes in the paintings.
