Thank you for sharing this information.
Where did you get it from? Most reliable sources (like the Europaische Stammtafeln) doesn;t give these pregnancies.

The list without concrete dates can be found in "Las Reinas de España", by Fernando González-Doria. The dates I copied them from an old book in my grandparents's home. Next time I pay them a visit I'll try to search for it!

By the way, is it true that children numbers 13 to 24 were mostly fathered by lovers of Maria Luisa (like Godoy)?
