Presumably inherited by Duke Philibert II ( - 1504) at Bona Sforza's death in 1503.
Inherited by Margaret of Austria, widow of Duke Philibert II, 1504, who moved to the Netherlands in 1506, taking the manuscript with her.
Margaret of Austria commissioned the scribe Etienne de Lale to replace some of the missing text in 1517, and between 1519 and 1521, the Flemish illuminator Gerard Horenbout ~(1465 - 1540) was commissioned to complete the manuscript.
Perhaps bequeathed by Margaret to Emperor Charles V, her nephew, who is depicted in a cameo bust on f. 213r with the monogram KR (Karolus Rex). J.C. Robinson, October 1871, from an unknown Spanish noble. John Malcolm of Poltalloch, c.1871. Presented to the British Museum by Malcolm in 1893.
