England: Henry the Young King(ruled jointly with his father, Henry II) 1170-1183; Richard II; John
Jane's "statistics" questions made me wonder about bretheren succeeding in a row in the same throne .
I will not consider here all those german houses where all siblings were called to a joint rule but only a normal succession line as in the cases below.
The most I could find were 3 siblings. Are there any 4 or plus cases ?
Are there any other cases of 3 siblings ?
Louis X, Philip V, Charles IV
François II, Charles IX, Henri III
Louis XVI, Louis XVIII, Charles X
Luis I, Fernando VI, Carlos III (2 full brothers and a half-brother on his father's side)
Carlo Emanuele IV, Vittorio Emanuele I, Carlo Felice
Erik IV, Abel, Christopher
Edward VI, Mary I; Elizabeth I (3 half siblings just on their father's side)
George II, Alexander, Pavlos
