Mary of Burgundy was born in Brussels on 13 February 1457. She died in Bruges on 27 March 1482, after she fell off her horse in the woods of the village of Torhout. The tomb was commissioned by her husband Maximillian of Austria in Brussels at the workshop of Jan Borman who made the design and who sculpted the statue of Mary based on her death mask.
