During the Neapolitan period, and in particular in its final part, Tino executed a large number of small marble bas-relief works, possibly for royal destination, among these the present relief in Washington. It was part of a very rare two-sided marble triptych, now separated and divided between various collections.

Sancia of Majorca (c. 1281-1345) was Queen of Naples from 1309 until 1343 as the wife of Robert the Wise.
