1767 Friederike Charlotte von Brandenburg-Schwedt (1745-1808), last Duchess-Abbess of Herford by Güte (Städtisches Museum - Herford, Nordrhein-Westfalen Germany)

This is an early appearance of an order sash and order star, both appearing to be religious, outside of Russia. Friederike Charlotte's court dress is otherwise spectacular, but conventional.
