Children of a monarch become monarchs

In the House of Stuart as well as the Coburgs, several English monarchs fathered more than 1 monarch. Charles the 1st fathered Charles II along with James II. James II was father to both Queen Mary II and Queen Anne. this arrangement was probably by Parliamentary directive? George III was followed on the throne by sons George IV and William IV. George V was followed by sons Edward VIII and George VI. From a technical point of view both Victoria and her son Edward VII had similar situations though one child was consort in a foreign nation. Edward VII had son George V as king of England while his daughter Maud was consort to Haakon in Norway. Victoria's eldest son was Edward VII of England while her eldest daughter briefly served as Queen of Prussia and Empress of Germany. Were there others, please? there must have been similar situations within earlier English royal houses?
