Super Alfonso XIII

Origin: W.K. Haselden, published in 1908 in the Daily Mirror
Purpose: To express Alfonso XIII's love for sports and leisure. Also to emphasizes his personality and youth. 
Value: To show he was too young and the irony of marrying Victoria of Batternberg on a whim of childish proportions. 
Limitations: This Cartoon shoes Alfonso as a young, energetic boy and no real presentation of his lack of knowledge or instability towards the throne.
