Image description for Fifteenth Century Manuscript Border With Jewels

[the image described here]

This ornate border features a dozen portraits of people, each surrounded by a gold wreath of leaves. There are little naked boys in pink, some with wings, seated between the portraits, and there are lots of pearls. Here and there blue devil-heads peek out from between the leaves. I cannot identify the people in the portraits, although at top centre is a king with beard and crown.
