Modern photography inspired in Ana de Mendoza, Princess of Eboli, a spanish noble from the XVI century that, despite lacking the vision of one eye, was considered one of the most beautiful ladies in the court of the time. 
Whoever is this model, she does justice to such alleged beauty.

    Caterina Sforza!

    fuckyeahrenaissancewomen:

    [Caterina] strapped on her cuirass, one of the very few made for a woman in that age. It was as expertly crafted as her luxurious gowns had been in her youth; the steel was shaped to her curves and reinforced to prevent crushing or compressing her breasts. It was also streamlined so that she could wear it underneath her clothes. Tiny plates fit perfectly together to allow for a wide range of movement. The delicate floral pattern incised on the front was the only concession to ornament, and on the upper left plate Saint Catherine of Alexandria, Caterina’s patron saint, was etched into the steel.

    The inacuracy of The Tudors costumes is almost legendary! And here we can see it so clearly with the elizabethan costumes used by Anabelle Wallis (Jane Seymour) and Sarah Bolger (Lady Mary), that are originally from the miniseries “Elizabeth I” (with Helen Mirren) and the movie “Elizabeth: The Golden Age (worn by Abbie Cornish).

    The Oscar nominated costumes for Sense and Sensibility were designed by Jenny Beavan and John Bright. They worked with one another on several other films, including The Remains of the Day, A Room With a View and The Bostonians. Their creations for Emma Thompson’s screenplay of Jane Austen’s famous novel have gone on to be used and altered for many Regency era films and television shows.

    This white and blue checked gown has certainly made the rounds over the years, having been worn at least nine times. It first appeared in 1995 on Emma Thompson as Elinor Dashwood in Sense and Sensibility. It was seen again in 2000 on Honeysuckle Weeks as Alice in the television special Victoria Wood with All the Trimmings in a skit entitled Plots and Proposals.  In 2002 it was seen on an extra in the mini-series Napoléon.  In 2003 it was worn again on an extra in Byron, and in 2004 was utilized in the reality series Regency House Party on Victoria Hopkins.  The gown was worn twice in 2007, first in Mansfield Park on Billie Piper as Fanny Price, and then in Persuasion on Rosamund Stephen as Henrietta Musgrove. In 2011 it was spotted on Nicola Burley as Isabella Linton in Wuthering Heights.  Most recently the costume was seen in 2013 in Austenland on Georgia King as Lady Amelia Heartwright, though some trim has been added to the sleeves and empire waist to give it a slightly different look.

    The alabaster effigy in the Priory Church at Little Dunmow.

    Legend tells us that this is Marion Fitzwalter known from the Robin Hood stories as Maid Marion.

    It seems that King John lusted after Matilda Fitzwalter, but she was protected by her father and sent to a nunnery to escape the King’s attention. Foiled by that, the King sent a messenger to Matilda who poisoned her when she refused to give her assent. So was Matilda Fitzwalter the same person as Marion Fitzwalter or is this lady someone else?
