You and José have probably named them all between you.
What probably made it easier for James II/VII to kill Monmouth was that he didn't believe he was his nephew. Although Charles II had always acknowledged Monmouth as his son (albeit not as his heir) James chose to believe the rumours that he was fathered by another of his mother's lovers by whom she was already pregnant when she began her relationship with Charles. In this he followed the example of his Tudor predecessor, Mary I who also gave credence to rumours that her half-sister Elizabeth had actually been fathered by one of her mother's supposed lovers.
Louis XVI was a direct descendant of Mary, Queen of Scots and of Charles I but I'm not sure about Marie-Antoinette.
She was a descendant from Mary :
Mary Queen of Scots --- James I --- Elisabeth The Winter Queen ---Karl Ludwig von der Pfalz --- Elisabeth von der Pfalz --- Elisabeth of Orléans --- François-Étienne duke of Lorraine --- Marie Antoinette
