When D.João VI elevated Brazil to a kingdom, creating the United Kingdom of Portugal and Brazil, it was expected that his children would have been created princes of both countries.
However I never saw any reference to such creation.
Since James VI/I, until the Act of Union, there was a dual house membership England-Scotland during the Stuart dynasty.
Ditto a dual membership England-Hannover from George I until William IV.
Henri IV, king of France, had beeen previously King of Navarre, a country he brought into the french orbit.
I don’t think it can be considered two houses in situations where *everyone* who belongs to “one” is also a member of the “other” (and vice versa), as would have been the case in England and Scotland... because the head of “both” was the same person.
