SUBALBUM:  Elizabeth of Bohemia

This set of images of Elizabeth Stuart, briefly Queen of Bohemia and also known as the "Winter Queen," makes good fashion history because they show how the ruff evolved into the lace collar and how the wheel farthingale was replaced by more elegant skirt styles.

Elizabeth Stuart, briefly Queen of Bohemia, was the oldest daughter of James VI/I and Anne of Denmark. When the Stuart family died out, her descendants in Hanover assumed the British throne as the Hanover-Windsor line. Her Wikipedia article is here.
