1690 Charlotte Amalie, Queen of Denmark (Frederiksborg Slot - Hillerod Denmark)

She had problems due to religious issues, but, according to her Wikipedia article, "Charlotte Amalie gained great popularity from defending Copenhagen when King Charles XII of Sweden invaded Zealand in 1700. During this incident, she strengthened the resolve of the people of the capital by speaking to them, convinced the commandant of the city to give the public access to the canons, and organized the defence of the capital. For this act, she was hailed (as) a heroine."

This striking 1690 portrait of Danish Queen Charlotte Amalie shows her in a dress made of soft material, almost en déshabille.
