1865 Countess Katinka Andrassy, born Countess Katharina Kendeffy by Borsos és Doctor, Pesten

Unsubstantiated rumor has it that her husband Gyula had a long standing relationship with Empress Elisabeth and that her son Rudolf was his. Her Magyar-language Wikipedia article is here.

Countess Andrassy wears a hair net and a black lace shawl that partially covers her crinoline in this Boros & Doctor photo from 1865. Her dress has a high neckline or she is wearing a lace scarf. She does appear to be wearing an evening dress, suggesting the item around her neckline is a scarf.
