Siege of a city and a prince speaking to an army commander

Most of the sheet depicts an attacking army near a city wall. The defenders lose out; in the inset at the top right a monarch sits on a blue terrace opposite warriors with a commander bowing to the frost. The scene is framed by black framing lines with a gold trim and a thin decorative edge decorated with gold spatter.
