Even though there are several members of the Saxe-Coburgs on thrones or pretenders to thrones, I understand that this family is actually a junior branch of another royal family- Wetton,
perhaps? Is the royal family of Romania members of a junior branch of the Hohenzollerns?
As a matter of fact, a junior branch of the Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen, a junior branch of the Hohenzollern family whose senior branch reigned in Prussia.
Are the Mountbattens in somewhat the same position as well?
The Mountbattens are a junior (and non-dynast in Germany) branch of the Hesse-Darmstadt, a junior branch of the Hesse family, itself a descendant of the Brabant dynasty.
