The Royal Bastard

Royal Portrait, artist unknown.
Gift from an anonymous donor, now to be found in the Riket Room of the National Museum.
Restoration in progress.

Subject of the portrait believed to be Sigurd Snoweyes, the illegitimate son of the 7th king. Folktales claim that at his birth at the height of a winter storm, spirits of wind and snow called for him to be given over to them. This took place for three nights, until a priest baptisized the child. Note the cross, which he was reported to wear at all times in his life since his baptism, but for one occasion.

At his father's death, Sigurd fought over the throne with his half-sister, as the king's heir the Prince had long gone missing. At the Battle of Frostheim, Sigurd Snoweyes's nearly won the day. During a charge, however, the cross was torn from him. A sudden blizzard swept over the battlefield. When it was done and men could see again without snow filling their eyes, Sigurd could not be found, neither dead nor alive. He was never seen again, according to legend.

See Karlsson's _History of the Royal Family_ for an extensive discussion of the War of the Succession.

Skin: MaCe by Dutch Touch
Hair: Wonder by Bryce
Outfit: Dimitri by RFyre
Sword: From Boxed Heroes
Boots: Pirate Boots from Illusions

Technique: Some windlight and a face light, otherwise straightforward in-world. Afterwords, I used a cracked paint texture to get the above look on a multiply layer, and a second overlay layer to brighten things a little. A slight average blur to make the details a little less sharp, more paint-like, as well.

Hi,
I moderate a group called Historical weapons, and we'd love to have this added to the group!
