English: Portrait of Edward Seymour, 1st Duke of Somerset, Lord Protector 1547–49. Seymour rose to power after the marriage of his sister Jane to King Henry VIII of England. When Henry died in 1547, leaving the throne to Seymour's nephew Edward VI, Seymour became Lord Protector and Governor of the King's Person. He fell from power after a coup d'état led by John Dudley, Earl of Warwick, and was executed in 1552.

According to art historian Roy Strong, there is only one absolutely certain portrait of Seymour, a miniature painted by Nicholas Hilliard in 1560 from an earlier painting. The features in the Hilliard support George Vertue's identification (c. 1745) of the present portrait as of Seymour. (Roy Strong, Tudor and Jacobean Portraits, London: HMSO, 1969, p. 295)
