There were and are few royal/princely twins born as the other children. I can't find if there ever were firstoborn twins.

Born as a first of the twins get the throne. But it depend of the sex of the firstborn twin and where they - twins are/would born.

But the sex of the twin doesn't really matter anymore, in most countries.

Yes, but f.ex. in Spain (as now) or in the Liechtenstein (?) it has matter.
In many centuries for many of the countries was and still is only male primogeniture.

Are there any regulations about that - firstborn twins? I mean in country constitutions about RFamilies in Europe or in the other monarchies?

Princess Margarete of Prussia, daughter of Victoria, the Princess Royal (and granddaughter of Queen Victoria) gave birth to TWO sets of twins. She already had two sons from single births before having the two sets of twins in 1896 (Philipp and Wolfgang) and 1901 (Richard and Christoph). When the Queen heard about the first set of twins, she was said to have laughed about the sudden increase in great-grandchildren.

At the end of WW1, Finland wanted to establish a monarchy, so they elected Margarete's husband, Prince Friedrich Karl as king. Their two older sons had both been killed in WW1, so they only had their two sets of twins left. Wolfgang, the younger twin of the first set, was chosen as his father's heir to the Finnish throne, since he was at the time ready to go with his parents to Finland, while his elder twin brother was not. Under pressure from the Allies, who wouldn't accept a German prince as king of Finland, Friedrich Karl renounced the throne, and Finland abandoned the idea.

I know quite of a few of Queen Victoria's descendants had twins, but this is the only case I can think of where a set of twins had a more active role in the politics of a country, though in this case, it was the younger twin who was preferred over the older one!

I would love for Princess Mary to have a boy and a girl.

Have there ever been twins in the Danish Royal Family?

What is with all the questioning. Even if twins are identical and look exactly alike there is always one born first. Twins are not born at the exact same time; so whichever twin was actually born first would have to be the heir.
I havent heard of many royal twins so I was starting to wonder if one of the twins conveniently disappeared or something like that.
