A scarce 17th century family tree with a prospect of London

Anonymous.

[A genealogy linking Charles II to Sophia Eleonore of Saxony.]
German, c.1660. Coloured. 380 x 240mm.

A small wormhole filled.

Very unusual engraving showing how Charles II was related to German families, including that of Sophia Eleonore of Saxony (1609-71). Behind the tree is a prospect of London from Whitehall to London Bridge, which is still loaded with houses.
The German verse at the foot of the tree relates to Charles's Restoration after the Civil War and suggests the need for alliance with Sophia.
