Lord Howard of Effingham, Earl of Nottingham, Knight of the Garter and Lord High Admiral of England was the commander of the fleet which destroyed the Spanish Armada. The piece was painted about 1620, when the Admiral was an old man, by a follower of Daniel Mytens (the head and hands are certainly by Mytens himself) and is a studio replica of the portrait in the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, which was painted throughout by Daniel Mytens.
