Blanche II and Eleonore I of Navarre
I know that this has happened twice in English royal history -- the Tudor half-sisters (Mary I and Elizabeth I) and the Stuart sisters (Mary II and Anne).
Elsewhere, I can think of one other example of two or more sisters from the same family inheriting a throne in their own rights: the two eldest daughters of Grand Duke Guillaume IV of Luxembourg.
Are there any other examples in royal history, European or otherwise, whereby several daughters in the same family succeeded to the same throne? Once again, one is talking here only of queens (or princesses or duchesses) REGNANT, not consort.
