Mystery Portrait

From reading many posts over the years, I see many members of NR are related to Regina de Aguayo. I received a hint on with a beautiful portrait of a young woman. I attached it to this post. Is anyone familiar with the source or story behind this portrait. Could this be Regina de Aguayo 1607-1690 from Nochistlan? She is my 9th GGM on my maternal side. I tried contacting the original person who shared the picture with no luck.

Hi, Ruben,
I think I am related to "El Mozo" Diego Aguayo, brother of Regina; their father Diego "El Viejo" Auayo.
Do you have Aguayo info to share? I'd like to as I have many Nochistlan records on the Aguayos. But my connections to them are weak or assumptive. So more concrete info is needed. For example, I don't have the date & source for Regina's birth. Where would I find it?
I'm at or call 209 586 3307.

Hello Ruben.

That image can be found at Wikimedia Commons:

1865 oil on canvas by Franz Xaver Winterhalter.

Thank you for the information. This is why I like to verify hints from ancestry before adding to my tree. This shows the flaws from ancestry where anyone can select random pictures and attach them to the wrong person.

Thanks again, you solved my mystery portrait issue.
