anonymous: Elizabeth of York
Portrait of Elizabeth of York (1465-1503)
Object type painting
English: The daughter of Edward IV, Elizabeth married Henry VII in 1486, an act which reconciled moderate Yorkist opposition to the Tudor dynasty. Four of their seven children survived infancy: Arthur, Henry (later Henry VIII), Margaret (later Queen of Scotland), and Mary (later Queen of France and subsequently Duchess of Suffolk). In this portrait, which was made a considerable time after her death, Elizabeth is shown holding a white rose, the symbol of the House of York. Around her neck is a pendant, combining rubies and pearls in the shape of the Tudor rose, symbolising the reconcilation of the Houses of York and Lancaster effected by her marriage.
