Princess Elizabeth (1635-1650), Daughter of Charles I

Sitter associated with 15 portraits
Princess Elizabeth Stuart was the second daughter of King Charles I and Queen Henrietta Maria. On the outbreak of civil war in 1642, Elizabeth and her brother Charles, Duke of Gloucester (later King Charles II) were placed under the care of Parliament. The House of Commons demanded that the royal children be brought up as strict Protestants. They were also forbidden to join their father's court at Oxford, and were held virtual prisoners at St James's Palace. Following Charles's execution in 1649, Elizabeth's brother escaped to Scotland. Elizabeth was moved as a hostage to the Isle of Wight in 1650; she died of pneumonia later that year.
