Princess Margherita by Michele Gordigiani (Palazzo del Quirinale, Roma)

Posted to Foro Dinastias by Katyusha on 15 June 2011.

Queen Margherita wears a large, almost eighteenth century, hat adorned with feathers in this portrait. Her dress is a marvel of extravagance with a black over-dress, a skirt, and a flounced under-skirt. Her dress also has a bertha and a van Dyck collar - a ruff.
