An engraving by Marcantonio Raimondi after a drawing depicting an emperor seated in a niche, which Bartsch thought to be by Raphael. This print is signed with the printmaker's monogram. Annotated on the verso. Trimmed within the platemark.

The British Museum holds another impression of the same print and catalogued it as after a drawing by Giulio Romano for the Coronation of Charlemagne in the Stanza dell'Incendio di Borgo in the Vatican.
