The children of Prince Antonio and Princess Christine of Brazil called their late paternal grandmother, The Princess Mother of Brazil, "Vó Maria", which means Grandma Maria in portuguese. I heard they call their maternal grandmother, The Dowager Princess of Ligne, Grand-mère.

The grandchildren of Princess Isabel of Brazil (1846-1921) called her "Vovó", which means Granny in portuguese, while they called The Count of Eu (1842-1922) "Bon-Papa", which I think means "Grandpa" in french.

Alexandra was born 1872 not 1772. Sorry.

Marie Valerie of Habsburg (1868-1924) wrote diaries. Some of them were printed in the 1990s.

She never mentioned her paternal grandparents, but her maternal grandparents als "Großmamá" and "Großpapá".

Later Marie Valerie married Franz Salvator (1866-1939) and had children of her owen.
Her children called Elisabeth (1837-1898) and Franz Joseph (1830-1916) "Omama" (accent on the "o") and "Opapa".

The parents of Franz Salvator died, bevor there grandchildren can speak.

I don't know, how Gisela (1856-1932) called her grandparents, her children called the parents of Gisela and the father-in-law of Gisela - the mother-in-law died young, and Giselas grandchildren called heir.

I also don't know, how Archduchess Elisabeth (1883-1963), Rudolf's daughter called her grandparents and hat contact to her children/grandchildren.

All of Victoria's grandchildren called her "Grandmama", to my knowledge, including Alicky/Alexandra Feodorovna.

"Gangan" is something her great-grandchildren used, and has since been applied by great-grandchildren to Queens Alexandra, Mary, Elizabeth the Queen Mother, and now Elizabeth II, although I'm not really sure where it came from.
