On September 2, 1634, King Ferdinand III of Hungary and the Cardinal-Infante Ferdinand met at Nördlingen on the Danube River. Days later the two Catholic rulers would combine their armies to fight the Protestants (they won). Rubens painted this grisaille as a sketch for the Stage of Welcome, a ceremonial arch for a festival coronation in Antwerp.
