Even the youngest of the Grand Dauphin's three sons is depicted in the militaristic pose of a knight. His plump face surrounded by blond curls nevertheless calls to mind that the prince is depicted at the age of fourteen. Similar to his eldest brother, he also died early: in a hunting accident in 1714.
