tiny-librarian:

On view here is a portrait of sister-in-law of Tsars Alexander I and Nikolai I, Grand Duchess Elena Pavlovna (she was the wife of their younger brother, Grand Duke Mikhail Pavlovich), nee Princess Charlotte of Wuerttemberg. It is a variation of the 1824 (the year of then 17-year-old Princess’ arrival to Russia, in which she also changed her Catholic name to Russian) portrait by German engraver David Weiss.
