You´re right, Remi. The images weren´t not under the name "Clementine d´Orleans", I made a research using the keyword "princesse" and the images appeared as "princesse clementine". I supposed -obviously, a mistake of mine...- she was Princesse Clementine d´Orleans, later princess Saxe-Coburg.
My fault...

BTW...do you know who is this princess of Saxe-Coburg?? The portrait was taken at the Atelier Adèle of Vienna circa 1869...



(Obviously, she wore a fancy dress...).

I  don't recognize her, but she appears to be dressed for a costume ball.

Dear Yseut the two photos you have posted are kept in château of Chantilly. Base Joconde put a question mark because they were not sure.But I have just found who she is. This is Léonide Leblanc, actress (as Svetabel supposed it) and famous mistress of duke of Aumale, brother of Clémentine et Chantilly's landlord.
Best regards

Bravo Yseut. Very nice portrait of Clémentine d'Orléans... with her famous big nose.

Perfectly clear, so. Thank you so much, Remi.

I'd say this could be her daughter Clothilde.

Yes, could be Clotilde. Mother and daughter were quite similar. But if the portrait say Princess of Saxe Coburg, it has to be Clementine.  In 1869, Clementine was in her 50's while Clotilde was in the 20's. The woman in the picture doesn't look so young to be Clotilde.

There is but little doubt, Mari: I think the pic of the link  you  posted  on september 4, and this posted by Yseut show  the same person, Clémentine d'Orléans.

Olivier Defrance wrote a wonderful biography of Clementine. All his books are very good.  Does anyone know if Olivier Defrance is plannnig a new book in the next times and about whom?

Here is a picture I took of the altar of the chapel (Grand Trianon, Versailles) where Marie & Alexandre got married. The chapel is very small and plain (I wondered why they did not marry in Versailles castle's chapel which is so beautiful).

For Marie's parents, this marriage was not much brilliant. Alexander of Wurtemberg was only the youngest in his family, the fifth son...Besides, the wedding was mixed: Roman Catholic and Lutherian...

This lady is neither Clémentine nor Clotilde, but Princess Amélie (future duchess in Bavaria) - no doubt about it.
Ich aber breite trauernd aus
die weiten weissen Schwingen,
Und kehr' ins Feenreich nach Haus -
Nichts soll mich wieder bringen.

I agree with you Marie. There is another pic from the same sitting in Paoli's bio of Clémentine.
