The miniature on ivory -Eugénie de Montijo.  Art Versailles
The miniature on ivory represents María Eugenia Ignacia Agustina de Palafox-Portocarrero de Guzmán y Kirkpatrick, Marchioness of Ardales, Marchioness of Moya, Countess of Teba, Countess of Montijo - known as Eugenie de Montijo -, born May 5.1826 in Granada and died July 11.1920 at Liria Palace in Madrid. He is a French politician of Spanish origin.
Wife of Napoleon iii, Emperor of the French, and therefore Empress of the French from January 29.1853 to September 4.1870, she was considered one of the most beautiful women of her time.
Empress Eugenie was often seen by her contemporaries as a very beautiful woman, with a great sense of aesthetics and fashion, as her many portraits attempt to reflect.
But she is also described as frivolous, ultra-Catholic and a bad adviser to Napoleon III.
She is to date the last woman to have ruled France with the prerogatives of a head of state (in reference to her regency, no woman having ever reigned in France as monarch, nor ruled as president).
