Habsburg & Bourbon-Parma?
User logged in as JanEl
2020 Pr. Henri de Bourbon-Parma married his 2nd cousin ADss. Gabriella of Austria.
Does this example really count? I know that Gabriella's mother, born Princess Marie-Astrid of Luxembourg, claims patrilineal descent from the house of Bourbon-Parma; but the daughter herself obviously does not.
Conversely, Henri undoubtedly has Habsburg ancestry; but as a member of the house of Bourbon-Parma, the Habsburg ancestors cannot be direct patrilineal.
Gabriella's father, too, probably has Bourbon (if not specifically Parma) ancestry; but he's a Habsburg. Isn't house membership generally through the male line?
