Louise-Françoise de Bourbon, Mademoiselle de Nantes, Duchess of Bourbon (1673-1743)
The Duchess of Bourbon was the daughter of Louis XIV and Madame de Montespan. In 1685 she was betrothed to the Prince of Condé at the Porcelain Trianon during a lavish banquet, the memory of which remains associated with the first Trianon palace.
Here the artist shows her in mourning after her husband’s death in 1710, with an ermine-lined coat, which only duchesses wore, and a veil of Holland linen.
