1575 Infantas Isabella Clara Eugenia and Catalina Micaela of Spain by Alonso Sánchez Coello (Prado)

These are the daughters of Elisabeth de Valois (the subject of the last Minialbum), Queen of Spain, and the topics of the next Minialbum and the one afterwards.

They appear to be wearing double skirts. Their sleeves, without the capelets formed by their hanging sleeves, would be French sleeves.
