Alexander Duke of Wurttemberg (1804-81) 28 years after the death of his wife Pss. Marie d'Orléans, married Katharina Amalie Pfennigkäufer, later Meyernberg.
Other loongtime widowers are King Olav V. of Norway, widower for almost 37 years, his father King Haakon VII., widower for 18 years and King Gustaf V. of Sweden, widower for 20 years.
Yes, the first two have already been mentioned in previous posts of this thread; I hadn't thought of the third one, however.
But given the longevity of the Bernadotte kings, perhaps it's no surprise.
