1623 Kirsten Munck, Leonora Christine's mother by Jacob van Doordt (location unknown to gogm)

Her Wikipedia article is here. Her daughter Leonora Christine became famous when her memoirs were published in 1869 (not a typo).

From arslonga.dk.

Countess Kirsten is wearing an English-style wheel farthingale and a post-Elizabethan collar and lapels decorated with lace in this 1623 van Doordt portrait.
