Louis Philippe, duc d’Orléans, spent time in London before the French Revolution. There, he socialised with George and his brothers. Taking the name ‘Philippe Égalité’ (Equality) for his espousal of revolutionary ideals, Orléans was nonetheless executed with other members of the French Royal Family in 1793. George commissioned the painting on which this mezzotint was based.
