Portrait of a Girl, Circle of Robert Peake the Elder, (1551-1619).

Oil on panel, in a painted cartouche, 57.8cm by 44.5cm.

By family tradition, the sitter is Elizabeth Stuart (1596-1662), the daughter of James I and Anne of Denmark and the wife of Frederick V, the Elector Palatine and King of Bohemia. His reign in Bohemia was short-lived, lasting just one winter, for which reason Elizabeth is often referred to as the ‘Winter Queen’. Through their daughter Sophia, the Hanoverian line succeeded to the British throne at the end of the Stuart dynasty.
