The National Portrait Gallery has opened a new exhibition at Montacute House of 16th century portraits - but the identities of the sitters aren't known.
As part of the project the NPG teamed up with acclaimed authors, like Julian Fellowes, who wrote fictional biographies of the lives of these portrait sitters.
This is one of the portraits Julian wrote about - her named her Blanche Vavasour, whose husband was executed on the orders of King Henry.
Sarah Singleton, who is best known for teenage fiction, named her portrait sitter Edmund Audley, who had romantic connections to Flanders.
The paintings were also researched by History of Art MA students at Bristol University who discovered more about the identities of the portrait sitters.
It is hoped that these portraits and the imagined biographies will spark people's interest in history and what life was like back in the 16 century.
The author Tracy Chevalier's portrait was imagined to be the object of homosexual desire, called Rosy because of his complexion.
The exhibition at Montacute House will run until 2012 for two National Trust seasons.
