Another way to see the coronation as King and Queen of Hungary, from a Hungarian site

I don't know where is it, I think that at Hungary

I found this portrait, the woman portrayed is deffinitively a Wittelsbach sister but I'm not totally sure if she's Sissi or one of her sisters (perhaps Marie or Mathilde?)

Another verssion of a family portrait, now Sissi is wearing a dark gown and Marie Valerie is standing near her

Thank you for your confirmation Therry
It looks like another verssion of the well known portrait of the visit of Nicholas II and Empress Alexandra Feodorovna to FJ and Sissi

Sisi's image began to be used more often as her fame and beauty spread. It did not cease with her death...

True, I think that there is another example of this, now that only is for making publicity....
Vintage card of Corfu depicting the Empress... they really knew how to make publicity of Corfu at knowing that she adored it very much!!, its only that she doesn't look like her at all....IMO she looks more like her sister Mathilde! Any idea of what's written on it?

Another based on her famous portrait of her Silver Wedding Anniversary

Card, Queen of Hungary

Sorry for the bad quality of this, the first time I see this family portrait in color  :-\

Any idea of who's the woman with the brown dress?

I was also thinking the same, the lady looks a bit like her but I have my doubts...

Well, looks like this is Italy and Miramare was the home of Charlotte and Maximillian. Why would the artist go to the trouble and paint/sketch a lady in waiting?
