Charles of France, French Prince (Versailles 1686-Marly 1714).

Son of Louis of France, the Grand Dauphin, and grandson of Louis XIV, he married in 1710 Marie Louise Élisabeth d'Orléans (Saint-Cloud 1695-Meudon 1719), eldest daughter of Philippe II, duc d'Orléans (the Regent).

Alexis Simon Belle (Paris 1674 -? 1734) was a pupil of François de Troy and devoted himself to portraiture. Employed by the small court of the pretender Jacques Stuart in Saint-Germain-en-Laye, he was admitted to the Academy in 1703 (portrait of François de Troy, Versailles). He painted the portraits of many great figures of the courts of France and Poland (Marie Leszczinska and her son, Versailles; Mlle de Béthisy and her brother, id.). He painted in a style that still recalls that of Mignard, his personality tending to fade in front of that of his models, unlike Rigaud or Largillière.
