Portrait of Queen Henrietta Maria (1609-1669), Queen of Charles I, standing with hand resting on a table with a crown and vase of roses. She was the daughter of Henri IV, King of France and Marie de Medicis. In 1625 she married Charles I, but the Civil War forced her to flee to France in 1644; she returned to England following the restoration (1660) and spent a few years at Somerset House as Dowager Queen until she returned to France in 1665.
