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.

Also Wilhelm I of Germany though his Great Grandson never reigned

Queen Maria I (1734-1816) of Portugal was alive when her great-grandson, Infante SebastiŠn 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 Jo„o VI, was already Prince Regent.
