Maria Barbola

Maria, to the left of la princesa, was abandoned as a child due to Maria’s family’s social status. They had been extremely poor and due to little to no exposure to achondroplastic disorder, they did not want to risk another mouth to feed. Maria was picked up from Austria by a slave trader who, in passing through Madrid, sold her to a patron of the court.

Anyone, aged 12 and over from Ontario, Canada

Nicholas Pertusato

the second dwarf beside Maria, Nicolas is only about 7. Born to an extremely wealthy land-owner in Italy, Nicolas grew up alongside the Infanta. Nicolas’ family tragically passed away in a home fire, 6 months before posing for this photo and Nicolas was the only survivor so, King Felipe IV insisted on adoption within by the court. Nicolas is very playful and affectionate but suffers from bouts of night terrors and severe anxiety from the tragedy.

Anyone, aged 12 and over from Ontario, Canada

King Felipe IV

Historically is described as being extremely passive and a true model of a Baroque sovereign, thanks to Olivares tireless effort to create that type of persona within Felipe. It is documented that the King was only remembered to have smiled a total of 3 times and based on the excessive circle of advisors surrounding the King, Felipe is nor personable or well-liked.

Anyone, aged 14 and over from Ontario, Canada

Princess de Condé

The representative sent from the Condé kingdom to begin the peace treaty between Spain and France. The princess is considered to be controversial because she does not abide by the role expected of her gender at the time. There is plenty of tension between her and the Spanish commander as well as the two princesses visiting from Madagascar.
