The sitter was born in St Petersburg, the tenth child and fourth son of Emperor Paul I and Sophie Dorothea of Württemberg. In 1824 he married his cousin, Princess Charlotte of Württemberg (1807-1873) and they went on to have five daughters. The family lived at the Mikhailovsky Palace which stands on the Moika River, and is now home to the State Russian Museum.
