Gorgeous painting!

Thanks:)

This is an image of the original, but in the replacement copy done after the theft, one of the judges was painted with the profile of King Leopold III- some sort of statement, perhaps?

Quite an observation! You're onto something!

And about Anne...a truly fascinating story that has managed to change history and unfortunately give strength to the heretics of the time...But, the underlying fact is that my heart belongs to Catherine and so does my allegiance- that's the faith and wife parts in me.

I'd still love to win the giveaway though- I guess that's the historian in me:)

My faith and loyalty is with Catherine, too. But Anne was definitely a very important, interesting character as well.
