1858 Helena of Mecklenburg-Schwerin from Die Gartenlaube (1858) p. 625


From Wikimedia.

This engraving is probably a portrait from when she died in 1858 based on some earlier portrait. Helene is awash in her lace shawl and a floral headdress that emphasizes width much as the lace headdress in the previous image does. She also appears to be wearing a lace scarf.
