The Princess was the daughter of Prince Karl Josef Anton von Auersperg (1720-1800) and Maria Josepha Rosa Trautson, Gräfin Trautson (1724-1792). In 1775 she married Carl Salm-Reifferscheidt (1750-1838), upon whom the title of 'Prince' was bestowed in 1790.

Füger painted this sitter on a number of occasions, both in oil and watercolour.1 Another version of this composition is held in a private collection.2
