Ten large Flemish tapestries line the walls of the Tapestry Room, depicting episodes from the lives of the ancient Persian king Cyrus the Great and the biblical patriarch Abraham. In her typical eclectic fashion, Isabella intermingled the two tapestry cycles and hung them in an order known only to her. You can tell the two cycles apart by looking at the top of each scene: the Abraham tapestries have a Latin inscription (shown at the center of this image), while the Cyrus tapestries do not (tapestry at left of image).
