If that was Carola, it must be a very early photograph.

This is a Winterhalter portrait. But who is the lady? Maybe it´s a famous portrait, but I don´t know it.

Thanks

This is Mathilde Letizia Wilhelmine Bonaparte, daughter of Jerome Bonaparte (youngest brother of Napoleon) and Katharina of Wurttemberg

Katenka, guess that was a battle of seconds ;)

The tiara is remarably beautiful. Does anybody know which one it is?

That really does, Katenka, thank you. It's maybe a heirloom from the Wurtemberg family. Problem is, that Sophie died at 1877 and Mathilde wore this tiara 1860...It seems to me that there was a duplicate for both of them or that the tiara was just in possesion of the Wurtemberg house and both ladies "borrowed" it for their paintings.

i dont know if it was an exactly duplicated but that kind of tiaras with stars were pretty popular  in that period.

Here another example with Queen Isabel II of spain

huh, "beautiful" lady :D thanks Katenka, then it might have been a modern "must have" in that time.

I beleive she is the Princess Maria Maximiliane of Leuchtenberg (1841-1914), the Duchess Wilhelm of Baden
