The source for this print is unknown, although it is likely to be a book illustration. The Latin inscription specifies that Lady Jane was the crowned Queen of England. This suggests that the print may well have originated in continental Europe, a theory supported by the sitter's costume. The print can therefore be seen as evidence of Lady Jane's Europe-wide fame. It suggests that European engravers formulated their own image of Lady Jane Grey rather than referring to English sources.
