Princess Rákóczi

The sitter has been traditionally identified as Charlotte Amelia (1649 - 1722), daughter of the Landgrave of Hesse-Rheinfels; she married the Hungarian patriot Francis Rákóczi II, Prince of Transylvania. From 1713 until her death she lived in Paris. Recently an identification of the sitter as the Marquise de Soucarière has been suggested.
