Isabel the Catholic by ? (location unknown to gogm)

From Wikimedia; photo - David Monniaux. Cracked paint lines removed and image cropped to remove frame artifacts with Photoshop and image made lighter by gogm.

Isabel wears a helmet-like cap, a caul, and veil ending with a jeweled crucifix and pendant in this portrait made after her wedding, as shown by the lion motifs in Spanish blackwork on her partlet. She also appears to be another sheer veil covering her face.
