Monarchs who have or had Great Grandchildren

Beside Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth II what other Past and Present Monarchs (current and former Royal Houses) were still Monarchs when a Great Grandchild was born who was in Direct Line for the throne?

Here One:
King Louis XV of France was born during the Reign of his Great Grandfather King Louis XIV.

King Christian IX of Denmark was alive to see his great grandson for the throne of Denmark. Also in the male line he was alive for the his great grandson heirs for Greece and Norway.

And Britain - great-grandfather of both Edward VIII and George VI and Russia - great-grandfather of Alexis (of course he didn't reach the throne but was still born during the reign and lifetime of Christian IX).

Went further as Louis XV actually succeeded his great-grandfather as his father and grandfather predeceased Louis XIV.

Both Grand Duchess Charlotte of Luxembourg and King Gustaf V of Sweden lived to welcome great-grandsons who have or are in line to succeed to the thrones of their respective countries (King Carl XVI Gustaf and Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume) though the Grand Duchess had already abdicated almost two decades earlier.

Queen Maria I (1734-1816) of Portugal was alive when her great-grandson, Infante Sebastián of Portugal and Spain, was born, in 1811. He was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where the Portuguese Royal Family lived between 1808 and 1821.

But the Queen's son, the future King João VI, was already Prince Regent.

Queen Victoria. As far as I know, her granddaughter Victoria (Born as a Princess of Hessen and by Rhine) and their husband Ludwig Mountbatten (Battenberg) had some children, who where born around 1900.
Queen Victoria died in 1901.

It was a Sensation in the european history. Louis XV succeeded his great-grandfather.

That was never known, as far as I know.

Louis XV 1/2. (1729-1765) died before he become king of France, so his second eldest son Louis XVI. was king in 1774.

Louis XIV (1638-1715) reigned from 1643 to his death.

His eldest son, Louis, Grand Dauphin, died in 1711.

That Louis's eldest son, Louis, le Petit Dauphin, died in 1712.

His eldest son, Louis, Duke of Brittany, Dauphin of France, within a month of his father's death.

Le Petit Dauphin's younger son, also Louis became Louis XV in 1715 (at the age of 5), as the senior most living descendant of his great-grandfather, Louis XIV. He would reign until 1774.

Queen Victoria lived to see more than half of her 87 great-grandchildren, the first of them was princess Feodora of Saxe-Meiningen, born in 1879, the granddaughter of Victoria, Princess Royal and daughter of princess Charlotte of Prussia.

Grand Duke Jean has 7 great grandchildren I think! His daughter Marie Astrid has 4 grandchildren and his son Grand Duke Henri has 3 at the moment.

Another of her great-grandchildren was Alice of Battenberg, born in 1885, the mother of Prince Philip. Not sure but he has to be one of her few great-great-grandchildren still alive?

More than you would expect - Queen Elizabeth II, Queen Margarethe II, King Harald V, King Carl XVI Gustav, Michael I of Romania, Juan Carlos I, and Maria Vladimirovna, are all also great-great-grandchildren of Victoria.
