This is a portrait of the decadent Spanish monarchy. Can you tell that illumination is poor; and shadows are a metaphor of the declining power? They do not need to represent Spain anymore. Besides that, the faces of all the people in it are alike, and it is not for blood reasons. They are not attractive at all to the people. It stands for a preposterous and repetitious image that no one can tell apart. Can you tell who is at the left side in the back of the painting? Like Velazquez' Goya also wanted inmortality for himself. This is a painting that rather reflects the inner wishes of the Spanish People, who, by then were fed-up with corruption, and were longing for a Republican- style political system.
