This cheesecake portrait demonstrates her relationship to King Friedrich Wilhelm II of Prussia. Her German Wikipedia article is here. It calls her "the Prussian Pompadour."
Countess Wilhelmine wears a long sleeved jacket that appears to be trimmed with lace and a feathered hat over a moderately high coiffure in this 1776 Therbusch portrait. Her dress lacks mechanical supports, such as panniers.
