1800 Wilhelmine de Sagan, princesse de Rohan by François Pascal Simon, baron Gérard (Châteaux de Versailles et de Trianon)

Wilhelmine, Anna Charlotte Dorothea von Medem's daughter, married and divorced twice. According to her Wikipedia article, she had an affair with Klemens Metternich from 1813 to about 1814 when she ended it because he insisted on her staying in the background.

Madame Recamier shows republican style while Wilhelmine shows how aristocrats adapted to the Revolutionary influence. She revives the fripon curls above the eyes seen 100 years earlier.
