This handsome genealogical chart is a wonderful example of Chatelain’s elegant engravings. Included in the 1720 edition of Atlas Historique, published by Chatelain in Amsterdam, this large chart is the sixteenth plate in volume two. Adorned with two ornate crests, this beautiful plate outlines the family tree of the Danish house of Holstein. Their various titles and arms are all explained and the different county states are also accounted for. Chatelain has included copious biographical notes throughout, and the whole plate is carefully drawn and artistically conceived. Maps
