Upgrade image posted 14 September 2018 from the-athenaeum.org; removed spots from background and fixed right edge with Photoshop and enlarged by half (the image cannot be enlarged any more than that). This replaced an image of her wearing the same dress and jewelry, but with an order sash and larger order bow that is reposted here.

Also posted to Empress Carlota’s Subalbum here.
