They used the word "race" differently years ago. It hasn't always meant color of one's skin.
It does not make much sense to talk about royal "races" to me, other than "European" perhaps.
But if you look at it from a wide angel, they all are members of one large tribe of mixed Germanic origin I suppose. Even the Bourbons and the Savoys, as they all basically descend from the Germanic tribe leaders that overrun the Roman Empire :-D
Of course, with a few drops of local Celtic, Spanish, Italian, French, Hungarian and Slavic blood here and there!
