    She was the direct descendent of General Simón de Lavalle Bodega de la Cuadra:
    Simón de Lavalle was born in the far north of Spain, in Múzquiz, Valle de Somorrostro (province of Vizcaya), in 1706. He journeyed to Peru as an adult, appointed the Royal Magistrate of Piura, Spanish accountant for the Royal Bank of Trujullo, and Inspector of Cajamarca, Huamachuco, and Huambos. He bacame Mayor of Trujillo

    Story is that her husband fell in love with the German governess and attempted to get Emma declared insane, but he was not successful in his plot. The subject is seated to the front left in the family photo.
    There is a Lavalle Family coat of arms in the upper right corner of the portrait. I had purchased Emma's fan from the same estate sale previously and just found her portrait in another antique shop today.

    Fan: Antique 1880s Handmade lace and inlaid ebony Victorian evening fan, the light would bounce off of the inlay and spangles. From the Belisimo Montero estate. Purchased in Brussels in the 1880s.

      Beautiful lady, in her portrait she looks like a strong person - and would have to be to survive her husband's plot! The fan is gorgeous & what a fabulous antique to own

      Newfld,
      I agree and thank you!

      kyra,
      Thank you! I really love weird stuff like this. Great to be able to look up a name and do research. I was really destined to have the portrait. The shop had just suffered a major leak in the roof and was not really open. I was talking to the antique dealer about a repair he was doing for me. I crawled through a lot of clutter, saw the portrait and thought that something looked familiar. I asked who it was and was shocked to discover I already owned her fan. It was like Christmas :)
