The king lies in bed in agony, surrounded by doctors and grieving courtiers
To his bed was your father confined,
In winter, in exquisite pain, nigh greater than he could endure.

Description

The king lies in bed in agony, surrounded by doctors and grieving courtiers as a cook brings a dish from the kitchen in the background.

The caption reads in the original German:
Es legte sich damals
Euer Vater im Winter mit großen Schmerzen zu Bette.
