The inscription on this print claims that the portrait is based on an original picture by Hans Holbein in the collection of Col. Elliott of Nottingham. As with the Heroologia print and others, Hans Holbein's name is frequently associated with erroneously identified portraits of Lady Jane. We cannot say if Col. Elliott deliberately misidentified the portrait or whether he was genuinely mistaken.
