:huh: Just of curiosity which of the royal families are closely related by virtue of marriage or any other manner.There are many royals who are today still related by arranged marriages.Such as the Greek royal family who have ties with Demark and Spain since Sofia is a greek princess and Ana Marie is a danish princesse.Also Queen Ingrid of Denmark is a Swedish princess by Birth so Victoria of Sweden Granddad is her Brother.Weird her nephew and grand niece are the future monarch of spain and her daughters are the Queens of Greece and Denmark. :blush:

C if u can think of any more close relations between the royals of today. :innocent:

King Albert of the Belgians is the brother of (former) grand duchess Josephine-Charlotte of Luxemburg.

And Albert and JC are cousins of Harald of Norway (their mothers were sisters).

I agree with you.

From what I know well, the French and the Brazilian royal families are actually the same family.

No, the Brazilian Imperial Family is a branch of the Portuguese Royal Family: HM King Pedro IV of Portugal was HIM Emperor Pedro I of Brazil. His eldest daughter was HM Queen Maria II of Portugal and his yougest son was HIM Emperor Pedro II of Brazil.

HIM Emperor Pedro I married HIRH Archduchess Leopoldine of Austria and HSH Princess Amelie of Leuchtenberg.

HIM Emperor Pedro II (son of HIM Empress Leopoldine) married HRH Princess Tereza Cristina of Bourbon Two-Sicilies.

HIH Crown Princess Isabel (Head of the Imperial House) married HRH Prince Gaston of France (who took the style HIH Prince Gastão of Brazil).

HIH Princess Isabel (great-daughter of HIH Crown Princess Isabel) married HRH Prince Henri of France, count of Paris (comte de Paris), and took the style HIRH Princess Isabelle of France, countess of Paris (comtesse de Paris).

So we can see there are two marriages between the Brazilian Imperial Family and the French Royal Family, but of course both families are not the same one... &#39;&#39;the Brazilian Imperial Family is a branch of the Portuguese Royal Family&#39;&#39;

BYE ^^

moosey60 05-03-2004 10:16 PM

Well, they&#39;re not in power...but they do exist. They&#39;re not Princes/Princesses of France to my knowledge, though. They&#39;ve become mediatized (saw that word on another topic, heh, am I using it right?). Think it&#39;s Prince/Princess d&#39;Orleans. Somethin&#39; like that.

B) I think the Royal family of the Netherlands are the most NOT closely related of the reigning families :unsure:

If you say that, you say the Danish, the Greek and the Norwaygean Royal Families are the same family&#33;...

The French Royal Family are Órleans.
The Portuguese Royal Family are Brangança.
The Brazilian Imperial Family are Orleães e Bragança.

Three different families with ties between them... That&#39;s it... Point.

The Duke of Edinburgh is either the cousin of King Constintine or the cousin of Constintine&#39;s father. Prince Phillip was a Prince of Greece and Denmark prior to his marriage to the then Princess Elizabeth.

The Grimaldi&#39;s are some of the least connected to the rest of European families.

Queen Victoria was know as the "Grandmother of Europe" because her many children married into other royal families - Sweden, Germany etc. Christian IX of Denmark was known as the "Father-in-law" of Europe because his 6 children married into other reigning families or they asked one of his younger sons to become king of X country.

Wrong, they are related to many families.

Marengo 11-16-2004 06:41 AM

Well, that depends on how you define closely related. The other royal families of europe have closer ties (except Monaco).
As both Wilhelmina as Juliana were only children, there weren t many dutch royals to get related to either. Hendrik of Mecklenburg-Schwerin (Wilhelmina's husband) was the half brother of the famous Grand Duchess Maria-Pavlovna of Russia & an uncle to Queen Alexandrine of Denmark and Crownprincess Cecilie of Germany (and Prussia)/ Via Maria Pavlovna the Orange-Nassaus are related to the Kents & Prussians. But I do not think that Queen Beatrix considers them as family these days. Queen Juliana's closest friends were these cousins however; Princess Kira Kirillovna of Prussia (nee GD of Russia) and Princess Marina of Kent (nee Pss of Greece and Denmark) and through the Waldeck-line her cousin Sybilla of Sweden (nee Pss of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha.

But the line ended there, Bernhard had (almost) no family ties, neither did Claus or Pieter etc. The only one who married equal after Wilhelminas marriage was the (much discussed) marriage of Princess Irene to Prince Carlos-Hugo de Bourbon-Parma (who is a nephew of the late Empress Zita of Austria and the late Grand Duchess Charlotte of Luxembourg & a Princess of Italy.

Which countries' royals have close relationships, possibly alliances, with other countries' royals?
