1865 Juliane, Countess of Brockdorff by Carl Wilhelm Friedrich Oesterley (auctioned by Christie's)

A brief genealogical sketch of her is here. Brockdorff was in Denmark, but is now in Germany. After several wars over Schleswig-Holstein, a referendum in 1920 fixed the German-Danish border in its present location - the north went Danish and the south went German.

This portrait was posted after one from 1852. The portraits show how little fashion has changed. The major technological change, hoops, can't be seen.
