Another favorite portrait - Eleanor of Scotland 1433-1480

Unknown Austrian artist, Eleanor Beaufort Stewart 1433-80 of Scotland

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 in childbirth.

Her father, James I of Scotland  (1394-1437)
