Oscar II. is no ancestor of Haakon VII.

It would go

The Swedish royal family is also related to the Spanish royal family through queen Victoria of Great Britain.

Queen Victoria → Prince Arthur → Princess Margaret → Prince Gustav Adolf, Duke of Västerbotten → King Carl XVI Gustav

Queen Victoria → Princess Beatrice → Queen Victoria Eugenia → Don Juan, Count of Barcelona → King Juan Carlos I of Spain

Hmmm... She would have been related to most German houses at the time, for a start. She also had cousins in Russia.

Victoria of Baden connects the present SRF with the old Swedish royal house of Holstein-Gottorp, Victoria's paternal grandmother was the daughter of Gustav IV Adolf of Sweden.

Victoria's maternal great-grandmother was Maria Pavlovna of Russia, a granddaughter of Catherine the Great, and a sister of tsars Alexander I and Nicholas I, and thus connects the SRF with the Romanovs.

Victoria was also first cousin to emperor Wilhelm II of German through her mother princess Louise of Prussia.

They are also related to the Danish Greek Royals as Queen Anne-Marie of Greece is the youngest daughter of King Fredrick IX of Denmark, thus youngest sister of Queen Margrethe of Denmark. Again, through Ingrid of Sweden. They are also related to Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg royals, through Ingrid's youngest daughter, Benedikte. Benedikte married Richard Casimir Karl August Robert Konstantin, 6th Prince of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg, they had two children: Gustav, Hereditary Prince of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg and Princess Nathalie.
