Mademoiselle de Chabot, in a black dress with a lace ruff and jewelled headdress by follower of François Clouet (auctioned by Alain R. Truong)

If this dates to about 1570 (based on her coiffure), then this Lady could be a daughter of Lenor de Chabot, Baron de Jarnac whose genealogical sketch, with links to his childrens’s sketches, is here.

I do not see a lace ruff.
