Lady in Waiting in the court of King Frederick II by Antoine Pesne (location unknown to gogm)

Queen Elisabeth Christine of Prussia was pretty, but this unnamed Lady-in-Waiting portrayed by Pesne is beautiful. I wondered if Frederick II played around on the side. His Wikipedia article suggests he didn't.

Detail-enhancement attempts were not successful.
