Presenting as moderns: concessions and agency in photographic gifts from Central Java's kings Even if by proxy rather than in person, Pakubuwono X and Pakualam VII conceded to presenting themselves to the Dutch monarchy in photographic form to mark royal occasions. The visual economy in which portraits of Central Javanese kings and princes circulated was fundamentally different from that of the Dutch royal family, and not for technological reasons.

, and by Mother.’85 This statement validates James’s claim to the throne of England and also insists that both sides of his royal family lineage included English monarchs. Therefore, Drayton insisted that James was not just the King of Britain but also of England.
