Marie Aimée de Rohan was born in 1600 while the date of this portrait is said to be 1660; making her an extremely well-preserved 60 year old. Either this is not a portrait of Marie Aimée de Rohan, the artist lied, or the date is wrong.
Marie de Rohan (?) wears a striped dress with a plain bertha and square lace tucker in this Beaubrun school portrait. Adding lightness (not shown) reveals her hair is flat along the top of her head. There may be a hint of a jeweled girdle showing beneath her lower hand.
