1820s Archduchess Clementina of Austria

The Habsburgs sent their daughters off to various Italian duchies and principalities before Cavour unified Italy, including Clementina shown here. She held the title Princess of Solerno by mariage to Leopold of Borbone-Two Sicilies. Her Wikipedia article is here.

Clementina wears an Apollo knot-style coiffure, but the big column of hair is made from braided curls. The braids are framed with hurluberlu curls.
