I've been wondering about the notable connections of the various European dynasties. This particular German grand ducal house produced (among others) Duchess Helena, who married Prince Ferdinand-Philippe of Orléans, eldest son of King Louis-Philippe of the French; Duchess Marie ("Aunt Miechen), who married the Grand Duke Vladimir Alexndrovich of Russia (third son of Czar Alexander II); Duchess Alexandrine, who became the queen of Denmark as the consort of King Christian X; and Duke Heinrich, who married Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands; and Duchess Cecilie, who became the last crown princess of Prussia.
Any other examples of prestigious alliances?
