Elisabeth of Lorraine, Electress of Bavaria by ? (location unknown to gogm)

Dating this is difficult. Elisabeth's dress is thoroughly slashed fthroughout and she wears either a big wheel or French farthingale. Her dress appears to have a triangular inset below the ruff and her hair is high and straight.
