The Orleans in France are a native dynasty. As are the Braganza's in Portugal and the Romanovs be it in the female line in Russia. Michael Romanov was a Russian who was called to the throne. He was chosen because of his family's links to the previous reigning dynasty: Rurik and that was a foreign dynasty.
The Italian dynasty of the Savoy could be seen as a native house. Their origins are also part of what now is Italy, but also in France and i believe a bit of Switzerland.
These "crown princes" of current defunct monarchies appear to be native to the countries from which they now hold their royal titles? Here, we have the crown prince of Serbia, the crown prince of Albania, and the crown prince of Montenegro. Are there others?
