Wow! Those pics will be hard to find! Perhaps I could outline a little family history first . . .

Louis IX of France's son Robert, Count of Clermont had a son who styled Duke of Bourbon. His descendants were subsequent Dukes of Bourbon, and one of them was Anthony, father of Henri IV. Anthony's youngest brother Louis was styled Prince of Conde. From his great-grandsons Louis and Anthony were descended the princes of Bourbon-Conde and Bourcon-Conti (extinct in 1830 and 1814 respectively).

Just a couple of corrections; Mlle de Blois was Francoise Marie de Bourbon, daughter of Louis XIV and Duchesse D'Orleans, not Princesse de Conde.  Her sister Louise Francoise married the Prince de Conde.  'Always Louise' was Anne Louise Benedicte de Bourbon, their sister-in-law, as she was married to their brother, the Duc du Maine.

Yes I knew that Mlle de Blois was not on the Bourbon Condé family but, like she was on the same painting that Mlle de Nantes, I thought it was a pity to cut the picture. Mlle de Nantes married in 1685  with Louis III of Bourbon Condé and had 9 children ( including  Louis Henry I) , so I thought  she was her place here, and " "Always Louise" was painting by françois de Troy, the painting is in Versailles, this information comes from the national reunion of museums (sometimes they make errors) and are identified like "Louise-Françoise de Bourbon, Mademoiselle de Nantes, Princesse de Condé, représentée en Cléopâtre faisant fondre la perle",if you have others informations about this painting i am open  ;), the next time I will try to give more explanations  ;).

Nancy Mitford made the original attribution and although she wasn't infalible she had a pretty sharp eye for pictures, and was chummy with the Versailles curators of her day.  I do think the de Troy looks a bit like the Gobert portrait of the Duchesse du Maine, although to be honest all Gobert portraits look alike:



To add to the confusion, the following is a 'portrait presume de Mademoiselle de Chartres depuis princesse de Conti' by Nattier which looks nothing like the one posted here already:



It is also suggested that it could be Mlle de Sens but the main attribution is of Louise-Diane d'Orleans.

I consulted the base of the government and you're right it is a portrait of the Duchesse of Maine by Pierre Gobert, there are sometimes confusion in the captions of portraits in the rmn (réunion des musées nationaux), thanks for your rectification   :)


Here your picture of the duchesse de Maine in colour :

I think that it would be interesting to star a new topic about the duc d'Enghien, Louis-Antoine-Henri de Bourbon-Condé, of the Condé family... He was still young when the revolution toke place, and he had a terrible fate...
