I'm a doofus. After doing a bit more research, I've figured out that I was wrong when I wrote this post about the Mary of Hungary dress and the Brussels Manuscript, thinking that I had discovered they belonged to the same person. Turns out the book belonged to Mary's aunt, Margaret of Austria. I didn't check the dates carefully. Margaret lived from 1480-1530, and it's her coat of arms inside the book. Mary lived from 1505-1558. They have similar names and titles, so it's easy to see how I goofed.

Now I'm seriously disappointed. Not only are the two items not connected, but I made an obvious and rather elementary mistake in my research. Boy do I feel stupid.

Edit: New userpic made by Flinx. Nice and appropriate, I think.
