Oil of Spanish Conquistador
Item Stock Code B5838 
Item Description
A full length portrait of a Spanish Conquistador, believed to be called Seraphin Carroz. C.1600

Seraphin is a masculine given name from the word Seraph/Seraphim. A seraph (seraphim plural) is a type of celestial or heavenly being in Christianity and Judaism and Islam.

Whilst nothing could be found specifically about Seraphin Carroz he was certainly part of the Carroz family, specifically the Centelles branch. The Carroz (Carr˛s or Carroš) were an ancient noble family of Germanic descent from Valencia. Centelles (Centellas) is both a municipality in Spain and the name of a branch of the Carroz family. The Centelles are a Spanish noble family of ducal lineage. Through marriages the Centelles had branches, now extinct, in Sicily. Altogether the family owned three marquisates , a duchy, seven counties and thirty-nine baronies ; contracted kinships, among others, with the Del Balzo , the Cardona, the Moncada , the Ruffo , the Ventimiglia and the Zuniga; it was aggregated to the seat of Nile of the seats of Naples.
