1612-1624 Margareta Grip (1586-1624), married in 1612 with Field Marshal Herman Wrangel in his first marriage by ? (Skoklosters slott -Stockholm, Sweden)

This appears in the Swedish-language Wikipedia article about Herman Wrangel. She married Herman Wrangel in 1612.

From Wikimedia; I made the background uniform deep gray, leaving her, her dress, and her insignia intact, before filling in shadows slightly in an attempt to bring out her maroon-black skirt. The original background color was somewhere between the deep gray seen and a lighter gray that may be due to fine dust deposited on the portrait. The area under her left tabbed sleeve was indistinguishable from the background so I left the dusty gray alone where the tabbed sleeve would come back around her arm.

This Swede is following British style in 1612 as seen in her portrait wearing a wheel farthingale and framing jeweled headdress. Her family name translates as griffon (English spelling of this word varies), a winged lion-like creature from Greek myth. Her neckline ruff appears to be decorated with griffons.

The rough translation Wikimedia's caption is, "...black robe with gold galloon, gold bordered(?) skirt and bodice, lace collar and lace cuffs. High pearl diadem and necklace composed of small beads. A couple bracelets and belt of gold. Pendant of gold in the pink ribbon bow..."
