Re: Ferdinand I of Austria
Got it, Ferdinand I of the Holy Roman Empire. Thanks for clarifying.
Ferdinand I of Austria through the descendants of his daughter Maria is the ancestor of not only Queen Elizabeth II but also of King Willem-Alexander, Grand Duke Henri as well as King Philippe, Carl XVI Gustaf, Margrethe II and Harald V and Felipe V. To get from Ferdinand I to George III (not Elizabeth's only link to Ferdinand): Ferdinand - Maria- Marie Eleonore of Cleves - Magdalene Sibylle of Prussia - August of Saxe Weissenfels - Magdalene Sibylle of Saxe Weissenfels - Frederick II Saxe Gotha Altenburg - Augusta Saxe Gotha Altenburg - George III
Elizabeth II, Margrethe II, Carl XVI Gustaf and Harald V descendants of Ferdinand I of Austria? I can't figure out how...
Is it true that only two sovereigns today (Spain and Liechtenstein) are descended from the Habsburgs?
Depends how many generations you want to go back.
Philippe de Belgique and Henri of Luxembourg are descendants from Maria Theresia and François de Lorraine.
Maria Theresia---Maria Carolina Queen of Two Sicilies---Maria Amelia Queen of the Français---Louise d'Orléans Queen of the Belgians---Philippe Count of Flanders---Albert I King of the Belgians---Leopold III King of the Belgians :
a. Albert II---Philippe I
Margareth II (like Harald or Carl XVI Gustaf) are descendants from Emperor Ferdinand I http://roglo.eu/roglo?lang=pt;m=RL;i=951188;l1=0;i1=951188;l2=14;i2=6486680
George III of UK is also a descendant from Emperor Ferdinand which makes Elisabeth II a Habsburg descendant http://roglo.eu/roglo?lang=pt;em=R;ei=951188;et=A;color=;i=2925913
