"Elizabeth of York and Jane Seymour (detail from the Whitehall Mural)", from the 1667 copy by Remigius van Leemput of the 1537 original, by Hans Holbein the Younger (Flemish, 1497/98-1543). Elizabeth (1466-1503) was Queen consort of England as spouse of King Henry VII from 1486 until 1503, and mother of King Henry VIII of England. Jane Seymour was one of Henry VIII's queens, and would've been in the early stages of her pregnancy when she stood for the original painting in 1536-37.
