Their sister Thyra was the wife of the claimant to the Hanoverian throne and her remaining son became the reigning duke of Brunswick.
If I understand correctly, he ("the prince who would not be king") was proffered the throne of Bulgaria -- which he refused. Otherwise, had he accepted, there would have been seven out of eight. Quite remarkable ...
Six out of eight:
King Christian IX and Queen Louise had 6 children
Frederik VIII king of Denmark
Alexandra Queen of UK and Emperess of India
Dagmar Emperess of Russia
Wilhelm aka George I king of Greece
Thyra titular queen of Hannover
