Ach! That portrait of Carlota is so cute! I don't know a thing about them--but Carlota's face looks so young in the painting, yet her clothing looks more adult, almost like a widow's cape.. any idea of her age?

By the way, this is very strange... the post w/ the picture of Maximillan vanished!  :o Some of my posts have been vanishing, too. What could be the matter ??

She is wearing "la coiffe brabanšonne", a black cloak over a white dress, a fashion that was popular in the French-speaking domain of Brabant, Belgium, during the XIX century.
The painting that Katenka posted is the original one, painted in Paris in 1844, and now in the Royal Collection of Belgium. The image was reproduced for royal relatives, and also circulated in other formats, as the one Rani posted.
