1657 Marie de Bourbon, Duchess of Orléans and Montpensier by Balthasar Moncornet

Montcornet made this engraving in 1657, three decades after Marie de Bourbon, Duchess of Montpensier, died after she married Louis XIII's brother Gaston to become Duchesse d'Orléans (in 1626) and died.

The collar-ruff and balloon sleeves date this into the 1620s, to about the time of her marriage.
