Is there any painting/lithograph about Clementine together with her husband or children?

Can somebody post me pictures about the church (Santa Chiara, Naples), where Clementine was buried?

I'm not sure if this is the right church!

But it's beautiful!

She is identified as one of the daughters of Francesco, conte di Trapani (1827-92) - younger brother of King Ferdinando II - and his wife Maria Isabella di Toscana (1834-1901). Could she be Antonia who married her cousin Alfonso Caserta ? or maybe her younger sister Carolina ?
Any idea ?

Well, she looks like Antonia, the same features I mean.

The little girl is so cute and she definitely looks like a Neapolitan princess, but I think it's really hard to identify her.

Trapani had four daughters:

Maria Antonietta (1851-1938)
Maria Teresa (1855-1856)
Maria Carolina (1856-1941)
Maria Annunziata (1858-1973)

So we have to take Maria Annunziata also into consideration ...

Does anybody have other pictures of the sisters as children or young adults? I've only seen pictures of Antonietta of Caserta in about 1900.

Nichts soll mich wieder bringen.

Maybe we should take into consideration the kind of dress the little princess is wearing. It does look mid-XIXth century to me which would make me lean more toward Antonia or maybe Teresa. Carolina or Annunziata were probably born too late to wear that kind of dress.

The girl´s features really reminds me of Antonietta, the later Countess of Caserta.

You are always right, so it must be her.  ;)

Soon after Maria Clementina died, a marriage was arranged between her widower Francis and Infanta Maria Isabella of Spain. Francis' mother, Queen Maria Carolina, who hadn't been consulted, was indignant and wrote to a friend:

"You know my projects for my son. Fate has willed otherwise. He wishes to marry his cousin, the Infanta of Spain. I have seen it in his own handwriting to the General (Acton) only ten days after the death of his virtuous wife, saying that this long celibacy oppressed him. I blush that this is my son. But God wishes to humiliate and torment us. We must adore His decrees."

I guess the seller means the left couple as the Trapanis. At least they have familiar features (the man does look like a Bourbon-Sicilian), while the couple at right could be their friends.

Here's a picture of Isabella of Tuskany (1834-1901)

And her husband Count Trapani
