I know that Infanta Isabel of Portugal (granddaughter of Ferdinand and Isabel of Spain) married her first cousin, Holy Roman Emperor Carlos V. A more recent example of maternal parallel cousins marrying would be the Grand Duchess Charlotte of Luxembourg and Prince Felix of Bourbon-Parma. Can anybody name other examples in history of couples whose mothers were sisters?
As for agnatic cousins, I'm sure there are plenty of more examples. Such unions have occurred everywhere, from the UK (e.g. grandchildren of Frederick, Prince of Wales), Wuerttemberg, and Bavaria, to name just a few examples. Can anybody provide a list of these as well?
