Re: Native dynasties

The Dutch Royal Family could only be said to be 'native' with the succession of the present King. Prior to that they were of German extraction, depending agnatically from Bernhard of Lippe-Biesterfeld; Prince Henry of Mecklenburg-Schwerin and Willian of Nassau. Similarly, Queen Margarethe of Denmark descends agnatically from the German House of Oldenburg.
The Royal families of Serbia, Montenegro and Albania, however, are all of native descent.
