As delicately feminine as the lady herself, and with the elegance that earned her the nickname “Queen Dolley.”

The fourth president’s wife, Dolley Madison, established the role of the First Lady in a time when the new republic was still figuring out the rules of presidential behavior. Presiding over the first Inaugural Ball, she bolstered Washington society, which was at the time, a provincial town compared to centers like Philadelphia and New York. A masterfully charming hostess, unofficial but important diplomat, and patriot famous for saving George Washington’s portrait from the encroaching British, Dolley was truly the first First Lady.

Notes:powdery violet, delicate white rose, fresh lemon, sweet benzoin
