ca. 1820 Dorothée Courlande by Joseph Chabord (château de Valençay - Valençay, Indre department France)

Dorothée, shown here, separated from her husband Edmond de Périgord in 1818 and accompanied Talleyrand, who arranged that marriage, to London.

Merci à Marc de Pouget for the location. He is Directeur des Archives départementales et du Patrimoine historique de l'Indre. Indre is located almost in the center of France and it was formed from part of the province (once the Duchy) of Berry.
