Mary of Burgundy by Michael Pacher, c.1490. Mary of Burgundy was the ruler of the Burgundian territories in the historical lands surrounding the River Rhine, (located in modern day Netherlands, Belgium, Northern France and West Germany), from 1477 to 1482. Austrian artist Pacher shows Mary as a strong and determined character; the side profile always seems to indicate strength and advancement to the future.
