Abstract : The theme of the hunting king is a classic element in the construction of the image of the monarchy. The royal iconography shows Philip IV hunting, and the same strategy animates the Anfiteatro de Felipe el Grande (Madrid, 1631), which relates and stages, by magnifying it, a hunting exploit of Philip IV in a perspective of monarchic propaganda. The treatises devoted to the education of the prince also emphasise the role of hunting in the training of the prince. This will be contrasted with the scandal caused by the photos of King Juan Carlos of Bourbon taking part in an elephant hunt in April 2012: these images caused a sharp deterioration in the monarch's image in public opinion and were one of the elements leading to his abdication on 19 June 2014. The contrasting analysis of these two phenomena (the presence of hunting in the construction of the king's image and in monarchical propaganda, and hunting as an element that precipitated the king's fall from grace in 2012) will make it possible to highlight the evolution of representations of hunting (and of the monarchy) in the minds
