1607 Marchesa Veronica Spinola Doria by Peter Paul Rubens (Kunsthalle Karlsruhe - Karlsruhe, Baden-Württemberg, Germany)

A very limited genealogical sketch of her is here. Wikipedia’s article about her husband, Giovanni Carlo Doria, had this, “ ...A son of Agostino Doria, doge of Genoa in 1601-1603, he was a prominent member of one of the richest and most influential families of Genua; his brother Giovanni Stefano Doria (1578-1641) became the 101st doge of Genua (1633-1635) and was considered the richest man in Italy in his day. Giovanni Carlo was married to Veronica Spinola, daughter of Ambrogio Spinola. He was given the Order of Santiago by Philip III of Spain..."
