She had 16 children
of whom 14 survived childhood. Her first child was named Maria Theresia
Josepha, born 1767. Assuming one year spacing between children, this portrait
would date to about 1769. The coiffure is about high enough to be 1770.
Infanta Maria Luisa poses with her children wearing her best dress and fur-lined robes.
