Ferdinand II de' Medici (1610 – 1670), who wears a commander's sash and the military order of San Stefano, and carries a commander's baton, succeeded his father as Grand Duke of Tuscany in 1621, assuming power in 1627. In 1634 he married Vittoria della Rovere (1621 – 1694). The poses of the two figures correspond with two single portraits of them by Sustermans (Florence, Uffizi). It is possible that earlier drawings were used for this double portrait and that it was not painted directly from life.
