ca. 1565-1568 Unknown Lady, possibly Margaret Clifford Lady Strange by Hans Eworth (Tate Collection - London, UK)

According to "Prince_Lieven" on the Alexander Palace Time Machine Discussion Forum, Lady Margaret was apparently a flightly, unreliable sort of character, not really taken seriously as a claimant. She was outwardly a Protestant, but apparently had Catholic tendencies, like her husband. Their son, Ferdinando Stanley, was approached by Catholic conspirators about claiming the throne, but he sensibly reported it to the council.

The sitter wears a gorgeous outfit with a black bodice and over-skirt and a reticulated pink under-skirt in this Eworth portrait. Gowns this complex offered opportunities for matching, in this case between the sleeves and petticoat.
