Occasionally a portrait may offer more than one name for its subject. For example, there are a portraits of the Genoese mercenary Andrea Doria that bear a second name, and sometimes a third and a fourth, all three of them English. For someone brought up on conventional history, the names simply do not go together. Yet if one traces every known appearance and action of each of these four names, and plots their timelines, one finds not conflict, but dovetailing. As one alias vanishes, another appears. It seems that 'Andrea Doria' adopted the name of a dead child, having been sent to Italy by a nervous aunt - his previous name having being King Edward V. Click on the picture and visit the Gallery of Timelines, and you will find a wealth of lives that dovetail to perfection, a conflation that also explains much that was hitherto inexplicable.
