1808(?) Dronning Marie Sophie Frederikke of Denmark, née Hesse-Cassel, by Christoffer Wilhelm Eckersberg (Frederiksborg Castle - København Denmark)

I have this in my files as dating from 1806. However, the dress dates this to maybe a decade later. She was regent in 1814-1815. Her Wikipedia article is here.

Fashion elements of later style, stiff material, a lower waistline, an A-line skirt, and rouleaux, are parts of the dress worn by Queen Marie Sophie.
