Armor of George Clifford, Third Earl of Cumberland - c. 1585
"George Clifford (1558–1605) was appointed Queen’s Champion in 1590 and  was made a Knight of the Garter two years later. He is best remembered  for his capture of the Spanish fort in San Juan, Puerto Rico, in 1598. A  favorite of Queen Elizabeth I (r. 1558–1603), he chose for the  decoration of this armor the Tudor rose, the French fleur-de-lis (then  part of the English arms), and the cipher of Elizabeth, two E’s back to  back."
