It is rumoured, that Queen Victoria was born in Southern Germany ... it is said, that her mother only made it to an English ship on the "Neckar". But unfortunately (for the city of "Eberbach") the story is not proved.

At the time British royal births had to be witnessed by a government official to make sure know one pulled a baby switcheroo. This didn't end until Prince Charles birth when George VI stopped it.

King Juan Carlos was born in Rome, Italy. He did spend part of his youth in Portugal. In general for most of today's monarchies (if not all) we can say that the succession is arranged by primogeniture and not by location.

It was not necessary, since the Dutch Constitution mentions no word about the birthplace of a successor. It was just a nice, symbolical tribute that with the European part of the kingdom occupied, there was still a royal princess born "on Dutch soil". Apparently it was a geste by the Governor-General of Canada, Prince Alexander of Teck, the Earl of Athlone. (His spouse, Princess Alice, was a full cousin to Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands).

If the constitution said that any heir to the throne would have to be born in the country then it would be a big deal. Some people might make it an issue even if there was not written about it.
