That doesnt look like Sophie at all 0_o. Are you sure?

It said sthg as "Sophie Charlotte Auguste, sister of Sissi"
Although I must make a confession: there were also portraits of other royals (like archduchess Gisela or Crown Princess Stephanie) but they didn't look totally like the real ones. That's why I didn't post more pics about them on their threads. I liked a bit this of sophie but I recognize that she doesn't look 100% like her.  :(

I ve seen a  portrait of another royal lady wearing a tiara like that and having a round face like that. So, i d say its mislabeled. You cant always trust in the labels.

EDIT

Got it...Maria Anna of Anhalt Dessau

PS. Amazing pics, like always Rani!!  :)

You´re welcome! :)

I know this site and think that CH is right. It must be Maria Anna of Anhalt Dessau. Good find!

Seems to be some engagement portrait of her, there's also one of Ludwig (that I've posted on his thread too), I hope it isn't already here  :-\

She was wearing the style of hair her elder sister, the Queen of Naples wore.
