It seems that this dynasty has a history of complicated relationships and marriages (there have been previous discussions of King Manuel I of Portugal). Of course, it's not unique to them.
I made a factual error in the original post, as Princess Imperial Isabel of Brazil did not marry a second son. Her husband was actually a first son -- but his father was the second son of King Louis- Philippe of the French.
