English: Portrait Miniature of Elizabeth, Lady Audley. Watercolour on vellum mounted on playing card, 5.6 cm diameter, Royal Collection, Windsor Castle.

This portrait is based on Holbein's drawing inscribed, by a later hand than Holbein's, "The Lady Audley". There were two ladies called Elizabeth, Lady Audley. One was the daughter of Sir Brian Tuke, whom Holbein also painted; but she did not become Lady Audley until 1557. The more likely sitter is Elizabeth Grey (d. 1564), who married Lord Audley of Walden in 1538. Reference
