She had four children, all present and accounted for here, the last, Konrad, in 1883.

Compare what Gisela wears in this photo to her 1872 photo; the decorations are on the fabric; no ruffles, no flounces, no frills. Big bustles came back in 1884 so Princess Elisabeth is hiding a large expanse of her mother's dress. Another version of this image posted on dates it to 1885.
