Portrait of Louis-Charles, dauphin of France (1785-1795) who was recognized by royalists as King Louis XVII of France, during his imprisonment in the Tower of the Temple. In July 1793, he was separated from his family to be "reeducated" in the spirit of the French Republic. Two years after being forced to testify against his mother, Marie Antoinette, young Louis-Charles died in captivity at age 10.

Painting by Joseph-Marie Vien le jeune, c. 1793. Possibly oil on canvas. In the Musée Carnavalet.
