The both had a deep love at first, but Luis's countless mistresses lead Maria Pia to depression. Together they had two sons who survived childhood, and a stillborn son in 1866. Maria Pia also gave birth to another stillborn son in 1869, and suffered miscarriages in 1872 and 1879. The King also fathered one illegitimate child, born in 1874 in Lisbon, a son named Carlos Augusto.
