Sweden: given the longevity of the Bernadotte kings, His Majesty Carl XVI Gustaf would likely not have succeeded to the throne as a young man of 27, and a bachelor at that. As it was, his three children were all born to a reigning monarch. When was the last time before his reign?
Gustav III became King in 1771. His son Gustaf IV Adolf was born in 1778 and Karl Gustav in 1782 (he died in 1783).
Gustaf IV Adolf became King in 1792. All five of his children were born during his reign.
