The King of England is Informed of Saint Ursula’s Proposal

Ca. 1410. Tempera on panel.
Room 051B

The panels come from the Dominican church of San Pablo in Palencia, where they formed part of an altarpiece dedicated to Saint Ursula, the daughter of the king of Brittany, famous for her beauty and Christian virtue. In the first scene, the monarch and the young woman receive an ambassador who informs them that Conan, the son of the king of England, has made a proposal of marriage. In the second, the ambassador delivers Ursula’s reply to her suitor and his father. She accepts on condition that Conan is baptised and departs with her on a pilgrimage to Rome.
