Is this Prince and Princess August Wilhelm or Eitel Friedrich?

I have seen them identified both ways.

Inquiring minds want to know...

Thank you, I was just going to ask the same question!

It looks like a Joseph Stieler work.

Who is this Isabel Maria of Portugal?

To be honest, I don't see how it could be anyone but Maria I of Portugal - though she was Maria Francisca Isabel Josefa Antónia Gertrudes Rita Joana, not Isabel Maria.  The woman in question is dressed correctly for her year of accession of 1777 or a bit later,  she's holding a septre and has a monarch's closed crown in front of her, and the crown rests on papers entitled 'Cortes de Lamego', which were documents of rather questionable origin, which supposedly established in medieval times various laws amongst which were the royal succession in Portugal, including descent in the female line.  It looks like the picture carries the symbols of her right to rule.  I can't say she looks like other portraits I've seen, but none of them seem to look like each other anyway. 

I saw this identified as Maria I, confirming your identification.

Thank you!

You got right to the problem. Karoline and Charlotte-Élisabeth look similar. Karoline lived from 1714 to 1741, Charlotte-Élisabeth from 1737-1760. The eyebrows of the mystery Princess Condé are closer to those of Charlotte-Élisabeth.

There were a number of Princesses de Condé in the 1700s. Which one is this?

When China really came out of its shell, they told the Anglophone world how to spell Chinese words and names. "Peking" became "Beijing."

There are so many ways to take Russian spellings that it can be exasperating. Take "Nikolaievna." Or is it "Nikolayevna." Or "Nikolaevna." Or "Nickolaievna." Or "Nicolaievna." Or ...

I spell the family name Romanov.

You posted an image of Maria Nikolaevna by Vladimir Hau on 18 February. Is this image of Olga Nikolaevna also by Hau? Do you when they were painted and where they are now?

There is a collection of Queen Olga of Württemberg images at http://www.gogmsite.net/queen_olga_of_wurttemberg/. The V. Gau mentioned as the artist for some of those images is probably Vladimir Hau.
