Another favorite portrait - Eleanor of Scotland 1458-1480




Unknown Austrian artist, Eleanor Stewart (1458-80) of Scotland, 1578-80


Eleanor was the daughter of James I of Scotland.  She married Sigismund (1427–1496), a Habsburg Duke, then Archduke of Further Austria, and finally ruler of Tyrol (from 1446 to 1490).  She served as the Archduchess consort of Austria, until she died young in childbirth.
