ca. 1670 Queen Eleonora Wiśniowiecka by ? (Wawel Castle - Kraków Poland)

She is also known as Eleanor of Austria. Her mother was Eleonora of Gonzaga. A few years after King Michael Korybut died, Eleonor married Charles V, Duke of Lorraine and had six children, four of whom passed their teens.

From her Wikipedia article.

Queen Eleonora's dress has features of late 1600s dress - the on-shoulder modesty piece-bertha, sleeves, waistline, and use of brocade. The hurluberlu coiffure is mid-century and she is not wearing a mantua.
