APH-Familia numerosa- by on @deviantART - It's in my head-canon as well that Antonio fathered (literally - not adopted) a lot of kids in the Americas. As for Francis...the original piece had a lot of people commenting about African colonies, but that was the Second French Empire, in the 19th century. Since this is referencing the First French Empire (i.e. the one that includes Canada), that's a moot point, but I would have liked to see some Caribbean OCs added as well.

Made of sterling silver (the figures and the shank) and 14K yellow gold. Adorned with a genuine freshwater pearl (8.5-9mm diameter).
