Julienne Hippolyte Joséphine d'Estrées, 1ère. duchesse de Villars-Brancas, Marquise de Graville et de Cérisay by ? (location ?)

Geneanet has three articles about her; this one may be the best. Her husband’s French-language Wikipedia article mentions her briefly, Google translated as “On January 5, 1597, he married Julienne Hippolyte Josephine d'Estrées, sister of Gabrielle d'Estrées, daughter of Antoine IV, Marquis de Cœuvres, and Françoise Babou de La Bourdaisière. Tallemant des Reaux in his Historiettes, accuses Josephine of having bribed a priest of Saint Paul to marry Villars. In order to recover her investment, she then, in the name of her husband went against the Lady d'Aiguillon.  This allowed her to obtain 40 000 ecus. In addition, the satirist paints a vitriolic portrait of the 'good man', describing him as:  'Ridiculous of body and spirit, because he is hunchbacked and almost imbecile and rude over it.’”

She was born around 1580 and died in or after 1657, age 77 or more. That raises a question about this Beaubrun brothers-esque portrait of her wearing a sheer taupe bertha and under-sleeves. The Beaubrun brothers appeared in the 1650s, but Julienne looks younger than someone in her 70s. This could be a fanciful portrait.

This dress has a cape and very wide paned sleeves that are open at their bottoms. The cape would qualify this as equestrian dress, if it ever existed.
