2008: Prince Charles-Philippe of Orléans and Diana, Duchess of Cadaval
User logged in as Charles
Their marriage was on 21 June 2008. They both descend in the male line from Robert II of France, who died in 1031. Orléanists reckon that Charles-Philippe is Duke of Anjou.
I know that the 1950 marriage of Prince Ludwig and Princess Irmengarde of Bavaria was the last union of first cousins, among European royals. Was it also the last union involving agnates? Or has there been a more recent example of a marriage between more distant cousins with a common patrilineal ancestor?
