It may be the Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen genes who provided the last set of twins.
Marie of H-S, countess of Flanders had a pair of twins, Henriette and Josephine, but Josephine died as a child.
Wilhelm Sovereign Prince of Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen had a pair of male twins from his first marriage to Maria Theresa of Bourbon-dos Siciles Friedrich and Franz Joseph.
Other royal twins:
*Louise Elisabeth and Anne Henriette of France, daughters of Louis XV and Marie Leczinska
* Elisabeth Ludovica and Amelie Augusta daughters of Maximilian I of Bavaria and his second wife Karoline of Baden. Both became queen-consorts Elisabeth of Prussia and Amelie of Saxony.
