The French army crossed the border of the Kingdom of Naples in 1806, with Joseph Bonaparte being declared king by Imperial decree on the 13th April that year. In 1808 when he ascended to the throne of Spain, he ceded his crown to Joachim Murat. Murat was to reign the Kingdom of the two Sicilies until 1815. It was during this brief interlude that the present four gouaches must have been painted.
