King Christian II and his queen, Isabella of Habsburg, had twin sons born on 4 July 1519, called Maximilian and Philip. Maximilian died the same year, and Philip died in 1520. |

: The recent birth of twins to the Danish
: 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).
