Duchesse d’Orléans



Philippa-Louise-Charlotte, Duchesse d’Orléans, 1842. The duchess wears the uniform of a lieutenant general, with her decorations, sword, and bicorne.

After Ingres.

  1. The Duc d'Orleans - Yet another haughty 19th century commander aristocrat who must be taught his proper place - and shown who is really in charge. Lovely. No impeccable uniform or polished shoes or SWORD for HIM!

    I would love to see Henri d'Orléans, Duc D'Aumale, given the same complete treatment...
