1578 Marie Élisabeth of Valois by François Clouet (location unknown to gogm)

She was the only child of Charles IX of France and Elisabeth of Austria. She lived for about five years. Her Wikipedia article is here.

Marie Élisabeth wears a interesting drum-shaped hat atop a frilly headdress that stands in front of a jeweled billiment in this Clouet portrait. Billiments are the jeweled head bands usually associated with French hoods.
