Knights of the Garter - The Laughing Cavaliers_

Knights of the Garter – the Laughing Cavaliers

 

The Laughing Cavalier (1624) by Frans Hals

 

Auctioned in Paris, 1865

 

Richard Seymour-Conway, KG #701, 4th Marquess of Hertford (1800 to 1870) outbid Baron James de Rothschild at more than six times the sales estimate!

 

 

James Mayer de Rothschild, Baron de Rothschild (1792 to 1868) - a German-French banker and the founder of the French branch of the Rothschild banking dynasty could easily have outbid Richard Seymour-Conway but he knew who his bosses were.

 

 

'Knights of the Garter' founded 1348 in Oxford

 

Motto - "Honi Soit Qui Mal Y Pense"
