Question from Jacky - Mary Tudor Brandon and The Lady and the Unicorn Tapestries

Mary Tudor Brandon and tapestries of The Lady and the Unicorn of Museum of Cluny in Paris: Is Mary the Lady with the lion and the unicorn?

[Edited to add: Jacky is looking for feedback on his website with the hypothesis listed above as part of research for a book. You can find the site here: http://dame-licorne.pagesperso-orange.fr/. Please note that the website is in English and French.]

Jacky says :

If you come to France, spend at least an hour in the Cluny Museum before the tapestry The Lady and the Unicorn and look for anything that appears to you to be or English Tudor. And report it here.
I am also interested, of course, by the French painter Jean Perréal which is, I think, the artist who drawn the tapestries, painted and drawn some portraits of Mary. Do you find a resemblance between Lady Mary and tapestries (except Anne de France who is the Lady of the tapestry falsely called The Touch)?
Some of you who are reading this, are you descendants of Mary and Charles ? Long ago, on the internet, I found a list of all the descendants of them. A very long list.
Very cordially.
