1743-1745 Maria Theresia of Hungary and Bohemia, Empress Consort of the Holy Roman Empire in Hungarian coronation robes by Daniel Schmiddeli (Godolloi Kiralyi Kastely)

Maria Theressia ascended the Habsburg throne in 1740, but Hungary was semi-autonomous. This portrait shows her lavishly dressed as Queen of Hungary. Empress Elisabeth would adopt the lace apron a century later.
