I have to say he realy dont look like a Party animal :ninja: Lovely looking medal but he realy looks down

 

They had no butox or plastic surgery then.

 

To be aged 60+ at those times was no fun - even for aristocrats.

 

He probably had 2-8 chronical diseases and permanent toothache. Most of his year of birth had already passed away in 1539.

This is a picture from his much earlier party days, what a codpiece!

Haha!...yes, very groovy outfits: just goes to show what terrible bores we are in modern times :ninja:

 

I love his doggie in the second pic' too - very fierce..

 

Its obvious none of you stroll the streets of downtown Santa Cruz on any given day of the year let alone Halloween or New Years or Summer Solstice or any other good excuse.
