Guess Who?


I really just want a new profile picture, but since it's here I challenge everyone (not Ines) to guess who this is and why I picked her. And for bonus points, to connect her to the boy scouts through a rather short chain of associations.

My heart sinks, but I cannot complain since I have just switched photos.

Were there more of a resemblance, I would have guessed Saint Margaret Clitherow.

Maria Catalina said...

It's that one lady that one artist painted....you know.....her.

Lucia Rosa said...

Yep, that's right. I now have a different and better picture of her.

Lucia Rosa said...

Actually, it looks just as blurry now. Oh well. Margaret Clitherow is a contemporary more or less, but nope.

Agnes Regina said...

Margaret is right, Clitherow isn't...

Nice picture, Crusader!

Margaret and french...¿sure is circa XVI century? ¿Maybe Scottish?

Lucia Rosa said...

Did I say French? Well, she's wearing a French hood, but no... Crusader88 was right about the country of origin, too.

No you didn't. But been related with your steel lily, I suppose she was french. So english. ¿Or british? One more thing. Is margaret, isn't she? Or Mary?

Agnes Regina said...

Yes, she is Margaret. But which?...

Familia de Erausquin (la auténtica) said...

¿Gautier? ¿Gutier-rez?

Familia de Erausquin (la auténtica) said...

Besides, you didn't answer the year, my dear. Nor the century, eventually.

Agnes Regina said...

Early 1500's, England... what else do you need? You'll never get it.

Familia de Erausquin (la auténtica) said...

I never tried. I'm just bothering.

Agnes Regina said...

Why am I not surprised?

Lucia Rosa said...

Give up?
