You don’t want to put too much faith in their accuracy. Artists tended to make fairly flattering images of people who could have them beheaded.
No, actually, there aren't. None of the pictures made in life have survived. All the portraits we have were painted many years after his death, and some were deliberately uglified to make him seem extra-conniving and evil.
What I find shocking is his deeply scoliotic spine. How crushed his internal organs must have been when the curvature was so deep.
