Frans Pourbus II made this portrait on behalf of Margaretha of Austria ( 1584 – 1611 ). In the painting Margaretha wears a large diamond called El estanque (‘The pond’) with under it a large pearl called La Peregrina (The Pilgrim) which she wears in several paintings.
Margaretha was born in Graz on December 25 in 1584 and was the 11th child of Charles II of Austria and Maria Anna of Bavaria.
Margaretha married her second cousin, the Spanish king Philip III, on 18 April 1599 and together they had 8 children. Their eldest daughter Anna Maria later married King Louis XIII of France. Margaretha died in the childbed of her youngest son Alfons Maurits in San Lorenzo de El Escorial on 03 October 1611.
Frans Pourbus II also painted a portrait of her husband King Philip III.
