Daria Leuchtenberg, née Opotchinina, by ? (location ?)

This portrait was confusing. The style is early 1820s. The subject is not Daria Kochubey, née Leuchtenberg, who was portrayed in a similar dress by Flameng. According to the genealogical sketch for this Lady, that Daria is the daughter of this Daria. This Daria married Eugène Maximilianovich de Beauharnais, making Grand Princess Maria Nikolaevna her mother-in-law. This Daria was born in March 1845, married in January of 1869, and died in March of 1870.
