I don't know what her money was invested in, but it paid off in a stream of these endlessly elaborate dresses.
Wonderful photo and dated Copenhagen 1879.

Well, goodness, it's her shoe, and not her ankle.

Probably just showing off that she has fancier stuff than you can dream of, head to toe, including nice shoes/ankle boots.

I know Lovisa took a lot of flack for her height and being a bit ungraceful, but I don't think a shorter woman could have pulled off all her Mandelbrot-like ruffles.

Here are two more dresses, Lovisa-style, and a mystery to me:

https://kgl-fotosamling.kongernessam...amling/r/37226 So this is pretty much confirmed Christian X, around age 2. (The hair tends to give it away.)

I can't figure out who this slightly younger kid is. The Palace in Oslo says it's Haakon with a different date and "no source". I was inclined to believe them, until I saw most other places (Getty, the Glucksborg blog) have it as Christian. The detail on the boy's face in the first picture is not good enough for a solid match.

Any ideas? The fact that it's just Lovisa and son would seem to tilt it to Christian — why do this for the spare? (Just bias, but she also appears to have that 'delighted new mother look' rather than 'tired second child'.)
