1600s Spanish children trapped in the bodies & costumes of their elders



 1550s Alonso Sanchez Coello (Spanish painter, ca.1531-1588) Carlos, Prince of Asturias, also known as Don Carlos (1545-1568), was the eldest son and heir-apparent of King Philip II of Spain

During this period, children of titled or landed nobles were dressed as miniature adults reflecting their particular social status, where children were often married or promised in marriage at very young ages to cement social, political, & economic alliances.  The portrait of an heir asserts their position of birth, wealth, & power of the family.  From the 16C to the 18C, sumptuary laws dictated what people of an established social status were allowed to wear, such as rich textiles, laces, jewelry, & accessories.  It was hoped that these laws would maintain the social order with the aristocracy at the top of the heap.  Unfortunately, or fortunately, these mandates were difficult to enforce.
