Frederick V, 1596-1632, Elector Palatine, King of Bohemia
A half-length portrait to right in armour and wearing a ruff and the sash and pendant of the Garter which is shown on the wrong shoulder. Frederick became elector in 1610 and married James I of England's daughter Elizabeth in 1613. In 1619 he was chosen king of Bohemia, but was driven out by imperial troops a week after his coronation. His most famous son was Prince Rupert the cavalier soldier and seaman. One of his daughters married the Elector of Hanover, their son eventually became George I of England. The portrait was painted in about 1624, and there is a later false inscription 'Earl Lindsey'.
