A 2nd? piano sonata, Op.4, dedicated to Pauline, queen of Würtemberg, is reviewed in the Berlin AMZ in the 26 October 1825 issue.

Dedicatee - probably? refers to Amalie of Zweibrücken-Birkenfeld (Maria Amalie Auguste) who was Duchess of Warsaw. An apparently more obvious example, Amalie Auguste of Bavaria (1801-77), does not seem to have had Duchess in her title.
