Dona Ana Manrique de Lara. Between 1531 and 1536. She served as a lady in waiting for Eleonor of Austria who was queen of France. During this time three portraits were made, two chalk drawings by Jean Clouet and one painting by Corneille Lyon.
The crown worn by Elizabeth I in her coronation portrait. Anne Boleyn was the only queen consort in history to be crowned with the Crown of St. Edward, like a monarch in her own right. But Anne felt it was too heavy to wear through the entire ceremony, so Henry had a lighter, more delicate crown made for her to wear during the celebrations. This may be Anne's crown. (None of the original royal jewels from the Tudor era survive intact. They were all melted down in the English civil wars.)
