ca. 1773 (estimate based on coiffure) Marie Clotilde of France (Madame Clotilde) with a guitar after François Hubert Drouais (location unknown to gogm)

She was the younger sister of Louis XVI and became Queen of Sardinia. Her husband Carlo Emmanuelle's younger sister Marie Joséphine became Comtesse de Provence and later Queen of France while his sister Marie Thérèse became Comtesse d'Artois  as part of the arrangements that included Madame Clothilde's marriage.

Madame Clothilde wears a high coiffure that reaches vertically, but does not extend horizontally as she plays the guitar in this circular portrait.
