1896 Daria Evgenievna Kochubey by François Flameng (State Hermitage Museum - St. Petersburg, Russia)

This is the body of her article from thepeerage...

"Daria de Beauharnais, Countess of Leuchtenburg was born on 19 March 1870 at St. Petersburg, Russia. She was the daughter of Eugene von Leuchtenberg and Daria Opotchinina. She married, firstly, Prince Leon Kotchoubey on 7 September 1893. She and Prince Leon Kotchoubey were divorced in 1911. She married, secondly, Waldemar Baron von Gravenitz on 22 February 1911 at St. Petersburg, Russia. She died after 1930 at St. Petersburg, Russia.       

From 7 September 1893, her married name became Kotchoubey. From 22 February 1911, her married name became von Gravenitz. She married thirdly an Italian Marchese, and fourthly a Spaniard.

Child of Daria de Beauharnais, Countess of Leuchtenburg and Prince Leon Kotchoubey Prince Eugene Kotchoubey de Beauharnais b. 24 Jul 1894, d. 6 Nov 1951.

Flameng liked to portray Empire-era scenes - this may account for Daria's anomalous dress.

Daria Leuchtenberg has gone almost one century retro. Her dress has a waistline just 5 or so cm below her bust, puffed sleeves, square neckline, and a cherusque. What more can you ask for.
