She looked very young here and most likely the eldest daughter Helene.

On this site there is a painting of Ludovika and one of her daughters. Which daughter could it be? There is no year or a bigger version.


Although you can't enlarge the painting, I don't think it is Ludovica. The child could be a boy, too.
Ich aber breite trauernd aus
die weiten weissen Schwingen,
Und kehr' ins Feenreich nach Haus -
Nichts soll mich wieder bringen.

But it ws normal for girls to have this hairstyle. Just look at Sisis daughter Sophie.

Well...Can't be sure since the photo is too small. It could be Queen Marie of Bavaria with Ludwig too...

The clothes, hairstyle seemed to be like Marie, who was much younger than Ludovika.

It's so small and dark. But she isn't Ludovica.

In the right site, you can see a portrait of Ludovika. It´s in St. Emmeram

She was a beautiful lady when she was young, she reminds me her mother, queen Caroline, specially
her eyebrows... I can't see the portrait, is very small and dark :-(

Ludovika was rumored to be the most beautiful of Queen Caroline's daughters. Ludovika's daughters were among the best looking princeses of Europe.

I didn't knew that she was considered as beautiful as you said, but her daughters were, specially Sissi and Sophie ;-)
Ludovika is more beautiful than her eldest sister, Sophie

Indeed...It was quite a shock that Ludovika discover that she alone was not going to be a Queen, Empress or even a consort of a reigning duke. She was dreamming of marrying Don Miguel of Portugal.
