Not sure exactly what "state funeral" means in your examples, but there are several examples in the Spanish royal house, especially since the restoration of the monarchy. Until 1931 there was a ceremony for the burial of royals, but not sure if there was a tradition of state funerals.
Alfonso XIII and Queen Victoria Eugenia had state funerals when their remains were tranferred to Spain in the 80's. But no representative from foreign Royal Houses.
The Count and Countess of Barcelona had state funerals, with honours of King and Queen of Spain (so, as if they were reigning King and Queen consort) and representatives from foreign Royal Houses. Don Juan's funeral was attended by all European Catholic reigning monarchs (Belgium, Luxembourg, Monaco and Liechtenstein), the Queen Mother of Denmark, the Prince of the Netherlands and the Prince of Wales. Only Sweden and Norway sent minor royals.
