I believe the lady on the far left is Teresa of Naples and Sicily, Empress of Brazil, wife of D. Pedro II.  She would be the only other "western" Empress at the time with the Queen Augusta of Prussia not becoming German Empress until 1871 and by that time Eugenie was no longer an Empress.  Queen Victoria was not declared Empress of India until 1876 and I doubt either the Empress Cixi of China or the Empress of Japan would be included in such a picture.  Anyway, the lady on the left looks like Empress Teresa.

Good job Duke, great detective work.  Sorry Mandie, that one was covered already back in the thread. :)

The one mystery woman left was bugging me, your conclusion Duke seems to make sense.  Well done.

I would love to have all the photos and pictures! It´s hard to find Helene photos but it is almost impossible to find Mathilde photos.

I think Helene photos are harder to find. There are quite a bit of postcards available on Mathilde & Sophie Charlotte.

Those photos were taken in Sinaia in 1896. I can recognize Emperor Franz Joseph and  Romanian Royal couple Carol I. and Carmen Silva. But I am not sure with lady in black. Is it Empress Elisabeth?
On first picture she is on top of hill. On second one she sat with Carmen Silva. Last one is detail of second photo.
Does anybody know, whether Sisi was with her husband on romanian state visit in Sinaia in that time? I haven't read it anywhere...but the lady really looks like the Empress.

I'm sure she isn't Elisabeth, more likely the Princess Marie of Edinburgh, the future Queen.
