Katherine of Aragon by Michael Sittow (Kunsthistorisches Museum, Wien)


This is Catherine of Aragon, wife number one for Henry VIII.

Henry VIII's first wife and mother of Queen Mary I ("Bloody Mary"). At least she kept her head. Her Wikipedia article is here.

The Wikipedia article for Michael Sittow is here.

Catherine of Aragon's headdress is spectacular Mediterranean style - not an English gabled hood that she is typically portrayed in.

Key words:  Sittow, Catherine of Aragon, Queen, Spanish, Tudor family, Henry VIII, straight coiffure, square neckline, necklace, jeweled neckline, headdress
