Queen in Scarlet

A portrait of Maria Carolina of Austria, Queen of Naples and Sicily, and favorite sister of Marie-Antoinette. (Via Anna Gibson.) To quote from the finale of Season 4 of Downton Abbey: 
 "You should try not to sound so much like the sister of Marie Antoinette." Isobel Crawley
"The Queen of Naples was a stalwart figure. I'll take it as a compliment."
Dowager Countess
