1860 Adelaide of Holstein-Augustenburg

This is Princess Feodora's sister, Queen Victoria's niece, and the mother of Kaiser Wilhelm II's first wife, Augusta Victoria of Schleswig-Holstein. Napoleon III courted her, much to Queen Victoria's dismay, before marrying Eugenia de Montijo y Guzman.

Sepia tone removed by gogm.

Princess Adelaide wears a crinoline day dress with numerous flounces along the entire height of the skirt and a paletot fringed by a ruffle.
