Saxony was indeed a protestant country with a catholic RF.
I think they converted at the time the saxon electors were also king of extremely catolic Poland.
Another interesting case is Luxembourg.
Protestant Duke Wilhelm IV got married to catholic Infanta D. Maria Ana of Bragança, a cousin of the 2 above mentioned infantas.
Under the marriage treaty, it was consigned that all boys born from Wilhelm and Maria Anna would be raised as protestants and all the girls, catholic.
As the couple only had daughters, the Lux.Gr.Ducal family became catholic.
Belgium is another interesting case:
Protestant Leopold (I) married 1stly anglican Pss Charlotte and when he was offered the crown of Belgium, he married the catholic Pss Louise of Orléans.
Later, Leopold III choose protestant princess Astrid to be his wife.
