Young Elizabeth I Found

Unknown Artist - Edward VI, Mary I and Elizabeth I as children (1550s) slightly enhancedA rare portrait of Queen Elizabeth I as a young princess (right side of this picture) has been discovered in the Duke of Buccleuch's collection at Boughton House in Northamptonshire. Elizabeth's siblings, Edward VI and Mary I, are shown with her. The complete painting also includes dad Henry VIII and his jester, Will Somers. The work dates from 1650 to 1680 and may be a copy of an original painted panel of the early 1550s.
