What just happened?

To celebrate Vikings Live, we have replaced our Roman alphabet with the runic alphabet used by the Vikings, the Scandinavian ‘Younger Futhark’. The ‘Younger Futhark’ has only 16 letters, so we have used some of the runic letters more than once or combined two runes for one Roman letter.

For an excellent introduction to runes, we recommend Martin Findell’s book published by British Museum Press.

  • Curator's comments

    From 'Musée Royal', see 1853,1008.115 for comment.
    This print reproduces a portrait which is in the collection of the Musée du Louvre (Inv. 612). Vasari reports that the head of the sitter was painted by Raphael after a cartoon executed by Giulio Romano, who also painted the rest of the portrait. The sitter, traditionally identified as Joanna of Aragon, is now thought to be Dona Isabel de Requesens.
