Elizabeth of Valois (1545–1568) was the daughter of King Henry II of France. As a result of the peace treaty signed between France and Spain in 1559, she became the third wife of King Philip II of Spain, although she had previously been engaged to marry his eldest son, Don Carlos.The distance required in a court portrait between the subject and the viewer is enhanced by the magnificence and stiffness of the richly embroidered clothing.
