I think it's lovely that the babies were born on the second anniversary of their parent's engagement. Never knew that before, thanks for the new fact Artemisia!

What's wrong wi having a Princess now and then, Lenora? After all, Ekaternina II didn't do a bad job when she was Empress of your country, did she.

Is it possible we see a trend toward twins among ruling or mediatized families? We have twins in Denmark and Belgium among children in the younger generation, those under ten. And now Prussia. The parents are all in their thirties, perhaps seeking medical help to be sure the royal line continues. One of the Pretenders to the throne of France had twins a year or so ago, again, the parents were in their thirties. We aren't going to know why, but it seems like quite a few twins. Maybe it's partly because the parents are over thirty. Someone in my town told me he had twins at 36 (his wife also 36) because that's the year when nature most favors twinning, perhaps "knowing" that the window of opportunity is growing a little smaller each year. Anyway, they made it!
Congratulations, and whew!
Did I miss some twins?

Thanks! Adeed Leopold and Charlotte to the list.
While obviously not as common as single children, most Monarchies do indeed have quite a few examples of Royal twins throughout their histories.

That's great news. After Prince Georg Friedrich the older one would be our future emperor (if we still had one).
And I really love the name Louis Ferdinand just like his ancestors.

I called the Belgian twins of Prince Laurent the "Dutch" twins...got them mixed up. Thanks, I corrected that mistake.
