Commissioned for John Chamberlaine's 1812 edition of "Portraits of Illustrious Personages of the Court of Henry VIII," featuring the original drawings by Holbein copied by a number of engravers. Mary Fitzroy, the Duchess of Richmond and Somerset, was born in 1519, married Henry Fitzroy, illegitimate son of Henry VIII around 1533, and died in 1557. This portrait was made around the date of her marriage. Holbein's original sketch that provides the basis for this work is now in the royal collection of the United Kingdom.
