I thought the Winterhalter portrait of queen Sophie belongs too on this thread so here it is (again).

Prince Alexander of the Netherlands, his "playroom" at Noordeinde palace in The Hague.




And here a watercolor version of this playroom. As it was fashioned at many courts at that time, queen Sophie ordered watercolor portraits of the important rooms in her palaces. I have also watercolors portraits of the salons of queen Olga of Wurttemberg, but where shall I post them?

Allthough queen Sophie found Olga a dreadfull woman, I  do find her symphatetic and guess she was a good person, with a not so happy marriage either by the way.
Is there anyone who has some more information about the personality of queen Olga of Wurttemberg?
