I get the impression that Sophia Radzivil, portrayed here in 1864 by Winterhalter, could have taken on half of the men she knew in a fight and won.
Princess Radzivil wears an ornate evening dress with acres of lace, bows, and a jeweled bow bodice ornament. She also wears a lace shawl and a floral headdress to decorate her wide hurluberlu coiffure.
