Despite evidence of affection early on in their marriage, Louis did not remain faithful to Maria Theresa for long. He took a series of mistresses, both official and unofficial, among them Louise de La Vallire, Franoise-Athnas, marquise de Montespan, and Anglique de Fontanges. Through these liaisons, he produced numerous illegitimate children, most of whom he married to members of cadet branches of the royal family.
Louis proved more faithful to his second wife, Franoise d'Aubign, marquise de Maintenon. It is believed that they were married secretly

Well, here we go... Let's just say Louis XIV was a very busy man!

With his wife Maria Theresia of Spain he had the following children:

Louis (1 November 1661 - 14 April 1711), better known as le Grand Dauphin.

Anne-lisabeth (18 November 1662 - 30 December 1662).

Marie-Anne (16 November 1664 - 26 December 1664).
