Magdalena of Bavaria:
* 1587
+ 1628
daughter of Duke Wilhelm V of Bavaria (Wittelsbach dynasty) and Renata de Lorraine
married Duke Wolfgang Wilhelm of Pfalz-Neuburg (a different Wittelsbach branch) in 1613
As the subject is depicted in Spanish court fashion, which was not exactly the latest fad at the time, this is probably a formal marriage portrait.

Peter Candid aka Pieter de Witte aka Pieter de Wit aka Pietro Candido:
* c. 1548 Brugge
+ 1628 München
painter to the court of the Duke of Bavaria since 1586
