Re: branches of royal families

I've always considered branches to be cadet lines established by Male Line descendants.
Of course, following THAT reasoning one comes up with the Windsors actually being nothing more than a cadet branch of the Greek royal Family!
Recently, we've had discussions about some royal families having branches made of descendants of a certain monarch of the family. With Victoria and Albert. there must have been several of these what with their many children. Their son became Edward VII and his daughter Maud soon became Queen of Norway. Is the royal family of Norway considered a branch of the Coburg-Windsors?
