Hedvig Eleonora av Holstein-Gottorp by David von Krafft (auctioned)

She ruled Sweden in the absence of her husband, Charles X, and acted as regent while her son was a boy. According to her Wikipedia article, she dominated the Swedish court.

The bodice of Queen Hedvig's dress would have worked in 1715; the rest of her dress is covered by robes with the three crown motif.
