Not mentioned so far, I think:
Count Axel and Count Birger of Rosenborg, sons of former Prince Flemming of Denmark
Prince Charles and Princess Catherine Napoleon
Prince Leopold and Princess Charlotte de Nassau, children of Prince Guillaume & Princess Sibilla of Luxembourg.
: The recent birth of twins to the Danish crown
: princely couple leads me to ask: when was
: the last time twins were born to the kingdom
: of Denmark?
: Elsewhere in Europe, I'd be interested ...
: certainly never in Norway, since the 1905
: separation of crowns with Sweden. What
: about Sweden? I don't believe any in the
: House of Bernadotte ... previous dynasties?
: I also have never heard of royal twins in
: the UK; I believe one would have to stretch
: the annals of history back to pre-Hanoverian
: times. For the purpose of convenience,
: perhaps we could separate the English and
: Scottis royal histories ...
: In Belgium, I believe there was a Prince
: Philip (the Count of Flanders) who had a
: pair of twin daughters. And, of course, the
: Luxembourg twins (Jean and Margaretha) are
: well-known as recent historical examples.
: Princess Irene of the Netherlands is the
: mother of twin children; however, they are
: members of the royal house of Bourbon-Parma
: (not Orange).
: Any in Spain, Liechtenstein, or Monaco? As
: for the non-reigning families, there
: probably are too many examples to count
: (well, there are too many deposed houses to
: cover). The only one coming immediately to
: mind are the Bavarian twins (sisters of the
: current Duke Franz).
