True. Felipe II had been elevated by his father to King of Napels so Queen Mary would marry a man of equal rank.
But if we are looking at couples, siblings or parents and children who both were reigning monarchs than we can add Joan I of Navarre and Philip IV of France as well as Mary I of Scotland and Francis II of France, Maria Theresia of Austria and Francis Stephen of Lorraine and their son Joseph II. Charles IX of France and Henri de Valois king of Poland would also qualify as do Charles V and Ferdinand I of Habsburg, Fernando of Spain and Carlos of Napels who later succeeded his brother in Spain leaving his second son to become King in Naples and his oldest son his heir in Spain. At the same time his younger brother became ruling Duke of Parma and Piacenza.
Sisters Zoe and Theodora were joint empresses of Byzantium.
Then Isabel and Fernando should not be included. When Isabel died, Fernando ceased to be King of Castile. He was not King regnant of Castile. Their case is not similar to William and Mary of GB.
But , according to the Act of marriage between Philip and Mary, I would say that their legal status was similar to their ancestors Isabel and Fernando. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Act_for_the_Marriage_of_Queen_Mary_to_Philip_of_Spain
I believe Felipe II was only King-consort in England and not co-ruler.
In Spain, like her parents, Juana I , together with Felipe I (Duke of Burgundy). Other examples in the Spanish medieval Kingdoms. When a woman inherited the throne, her husband ruled and even inherited the throne, like in the union between the Kingdom of Aragon and the County of Barcelona.
Felipe II of Spain and Mary I of England could be also considered as another example, although he did not get an ordinal as King of England.
Can anybody provide a list of these, throughout European royal history? Off the top of my head, I can name the following --
Queen Isabel I of Castel and King Fernando V of Aragon
Czar Ivan V and Czar Peter I ("The Great") of Russia
Queen Maria I and King Pedro III of Portugal
King William III (House of Orange) and Queen Maria II (House of Stuart) of Great Britain
