Luisa Carlotta Maria Isabella (24 October 1804 – 29 January 1844), was Princess of the Two Sicilies, Infanta of Spain, the eldest daughter of King Francis I of the Two Sicilies and of Maria Isabella of Spain. On 12 June 1819 in Madrid, Luisa Carlotta married her maternal uncle Infante Francisco de Paula of Spain. They had 11 children including king of Spain.
Her son Francisco de Asís, Duke of Cádiz (1822–1902), married Queen Isabella II of Spain
Her daughters María Cristina (1833–1902), married Sebastian Gabriël de Bourbon, great-grandson of King Charles III of Spain, and Amalia (1834–1905), married Prince Adalbert of Bavaria, youngest son of King Ludwig I of Bavaria.

Hair and manusript at the back of the frame, may be a Souvenir left by Caroline Murat in Naples, have conducted for a longtime to a wrong identification of this portrait, known in the Montagu sale as Caroline Bonaparte, sister of Napoléon and queen of Naples.
