Princess Mihailo Obrenovic, née Countess Julia Hunyady von Kéthely married on 1 August 1853 by André Disdéri

She was a Hungarian who was born in Vienna and played an important role in Serbian history. Her Wikipedia article is here.

From Paul Frecker; sepia tone removed by gogm.

Princess Julia wears a dome crinoline with substantial, though not gigantic, pagoda sleeves in this Didéri photo. The bonnet, pagoda sleeves, and dome crinoline lead me to believe this photo dates to 1860, maybe earlier and not much later.
