Elisabeth von Parlaghy or Princess Vilma Lwoff-Parlaghy, as she was more commonly known, was a portrait painter as well as an international celebrity of sorts.  Born in Hungary, she studied in Budapest, in Munich with Franz Quaglio and Wilhelm Dürr the Younger, and in Venice, Florence, and Turin, soon becoming a favorite of the Court of Berlin. The "princess" married and divorced (in short order) a Russian prince, was subsequently very rich, and was well-known as an animal-lover. Her entourage and her pets, including a lion, traveled with her to luxurious hotels in Europe and America. Her last fifteen years were spent in New York. She was known for her portraits of important public figures.
