Inchiquin with His Doggo

He was caught between two worlds and he wasn’t the nicest of men.

But his Irish wolfhound loved him.

Sir Godfrey Kneller did a pretty awesome job with this one.

(The reproduction of the portrait isn’t all that bright, so you may have to zoom in, just to see the dog.)

He was probably named for William of Orange, because Uilliam wasn’t a popular Irish name until Protestants started using it.
