Cartoon shows Catherine II, Leopold II, and Frederick William II seated at a table on which rests a map "Map of the Kingdom of Poland". Standing behind them and looking over their shoulders are Louis XV and Charles III, and further back, asleep on a throne is George II. In front of them sits the King of Poland, Stanislaw II August, with his crown broken and his hands bound behind his back. To the left of the King of Poland sits Selim II in chains.
