Mary Tudor during her first year as queen; painting by Hans Eworth, 1554. According to Eamon Duffy in Fires of Faith, she is wearing ‘a Tao cross on a choker of pearls at her neck, and hanging from her girdle is a gilt-enamel reliquary with emblems of the Four Evangelists. Relics were denounced and destroyed by Mary’s father and her brother: to display this restored reliquary in an official portrait was an overt declaration of the queen’s religious agenda.’
