Object Detail


Princess Louise of Stolberg (1753-1824), Countess of Albany, is depicted half-length, turned to the right, head facing the viewer, wearing a rich silver dress decorated with goldwork and jewellery. She was born at Mons, in present-day Belgium. She married Charles Edward Stuart (Bonnie Prince Charlie) in Italy in 1772, and this portrait may date from the 1770s. A miniature portrait of her can be found on the back of the St Andrew Jewel on display in the Crown Room at Edinburgh Castle.
