    The portrait above is Not of Sidney Godolphin the poet, but is of Sidney Godolphin 1st. Earl of Godolphin (1645 - 1710) who was Queen Anne’s First Minister. The staff in his hand is his staff of Office. Please remove it. If you look on Wikipedia for Sidney the poet you can easily find the only known portrait of him. Sidney the poet, died two years before Sidney the Earl, was born, although Sidney the poet was the brother of Earl Sidney’s father.
