Princesa Sophie Troubetzkoy, Duquesa de Morny, Duquesa de Alburquerque, Duquesa de Sesto by ?

Her Wikipedia article includes this, “...Her husband died suddenly on 26 February 1865 and she left their residence to live austerely in mourning. This lasted until she was looking through some documents and accidentally found a note for an assignation between Charles and his mistress - she then left mourning and slowly resumed her social life, in the course of which she met the Spanish nobleman José Osorio y Silva at his villa in Deauville, a major venue for the French aristocracy. He was living there with the exiled Spanish royal family and married Sofia in Vitoria on 21 March 1869. She organised social events, festivals and cultural gatherings to gain support and raise money for her husband's plan to restoration the Spanish monarchy…” Their marriage did not produce children.

Sophie is awash in curls and frills in this late crinoline era dress. This dress was probably spectacular to see in color.
