1838 Anne Berthier Wittelsbach, comtesse de Plaisance la comtesse était la fille unique du Maréchal Berthier et de Marie Elizabeth in Bayern, prince et princesse de Wagram by Franz Xaver Winterhalter (auctioned by Sotheby's)

A genealogical sketch for her is here. How does the name Wittelsbach get in there - her mother was Duchess Marie Elisabeth von Wittelsbach.

From the lost gallery's photostream on flickr.

Anne Berthier's chemise has a vee neckline, her bodice has a scoop neckline, and the bottom of her bertha is straight. Her hair is rolled up on the sides of her head à la Princess Leia instead of falling in neo-hurluberlu style or being wound as a single tendril as seen in portraits of Queen Victoria. She uses red bows, including a set arranged enéchelle, and black lace for accents. Her lace bertha reaches from shoulders to almost the center front, leaving the bows en échelle uncovered. A lace ruffle announces her waistline.
