Well there's been a small mixup of letters here. She was a duchess the lady she was named after, and that spells herzogin in German. Here's what the lady may have looked like:http://www.shipsnostalgia.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=69238 With the name spelled correctly this picture will be easier to retrive from the SN archives. Regards, Stein.

Changed that around for you. Makes more sense.
Ebay recently sold a bit of her timber with a barometer mounted on it inscribed with the name and date of her loss. It did not make a lot of money.
Cheers
