Born in 1768, she was 48 at the begining of James Monroe's 1st term. One detects a bit of pre-digital photoshop at work in the image I posted, as it is clearly based on this handsome but clearly mature portrait: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elizabeth_Kortright_Monroe


How old was she when she was first lady?
