I was just trying to dig in deeper on the topic.
Isn't Louise Augusta questionable though?
Louise Augusta of Denmark and Norway (1771 – 1843) was the daughter of the Queen of Denmark-Norway, Caroline Matilda of Great Britain. Though officially regarded as the daughter of King Christian VII, it is widely accepted that her biological father was Johann Friedrich Struensee, the king's royal physician and de facto regent of the country at the time of her birth.
Her biologic father may not have been the king, but he recognized her and gave her his name.
If one starts disputing which cuckoos put their eggs in others' nests, the discussion may open several cans of worms.
It seems fair to assume that Emperess Maria Alexandrovna, Tsar Alexander II's wife, was not the daughter of the Grand-Duke of Hesse-Darmstadt.
Yet she was born a Princess of Hesse-Darmstadt because her father recognized her.
When Q.Isabel II of Spain and Emperess Eugénie were discussing a possible engagement between Infanta Maria del Pilar and Napoléon (IV), the Queen assured the Emperess that Pilar's father was a strong and healthy man, unlike her husband.
Pilar's brother, Alfonso XII, was 99,99% sure the son of Isabel's lover, Enrique Puigmoltó y Mayans.
Maria Luisa de Parma confessed to a priest that neither of her children were fathered by her husband.
Should one discard ALL the descendants of Carlos IV due to their probable ilegitimacy ?
