Prince John and Princesses Dorothea and Christina were the children of the exiled King Christian II of Denmark. Their mother died in January 1526 when the children were aged 7, 5 and 3, and this portrait was perhaps commissioned in her honour. The children were brought up at the court of Margaret of Austria, Governor of the Netherlands, in Mechelen.
