According to King Olav, in various biographies, and what his children report, it was only Crown Princess Märtha in his life.

Indeed. Georg was the oldest, and Flemming was the youngest. Flemming of Rosenborg was best man at Harald and Sonja's wedding.

Me to! I bought several picture books with royals in it, the 'royaly after/between/before the wars' series, 'the camera and the tsars', a greek book about their RF (in greek) and more (expensive hobby btw).

1894: Queen Victoria (1819 - 1901) sits amongst some of her relatives. Amongst them are the Duke of Edinburgh, the Duke of Connaught, Kaiser Wilhelm II (1859 - 1941) (and his mother Victoria) of Germany, the Tsarina of Russia, Prince Edward (1841 - 1910), Tsar Nicholas II (1868 - 1918) of Russia. Most of her children and grandchildren have married into nearly all of the Royal houses of Europe.

Yes. Her mother was Princess Beatrice who escaped Queen Victoria's maternal domination by marrying Prince Henry of Battenberg, but only on the condition that she and her new husband remain close by. They are the great-grandparents of King Juan Carlos.
Here's a pic of their wedding, courtesy of Getty Images.
