1674 Madame de Maintenon avec le Comte de Vexin et le Duc du Maine by Pierre Mignard (Château de Maintenon - Maintenon, Île-de-France, France)

She was spared from leaving France by Madame de Montespan who had Françoise care for the children she had by Louis XIV. When the King turned his affections toward Maintenon, the Ladies clashed.

The date is assigned by analogy to the almost identical portrait shown in the next image that Wikiwand assigns to that portrait. The duc du Maine was born in 1670, the comte de Vexin 1672, supporting the 1674 date.
