His sojourn in Monte-Cristo deeply changed the mood of the Elector Spiritual, as is obvious from the 'revitalized' atmosphere of his Court (now 'the most enjoyable court in Pangaea!!' -and you are still to discover 'the mysterious all female company under the command of Hauptfrauen Anias Nin and Major Lolita von Sapho'! ) and the political changes he imposed in Witzboldfeld.

Great artistic rendition of this character and his entourage - the Cardinal compliments and blesses the talented painter.

It is instructive to compare this contemporary portrait of His Eminence the Elector Spiritual, Cardinal Johan-Louis von Hausseinem in Christofberg, with the one done as Feudal Suveraen Fuerste-Erzbischof des Witzboldfeld, just before his departure to far away Monte-Cristo.
