Special is the case of two of the Yugoslavian twins.

Prince Alexander of Yugoslavia (August 13, 1924) and his first wife princess Maria-Pia of Savoy (Italy) (September 24, 1934) became the parents of two sets of twins:
- prince Dimitri and prince Michael (1958)
- prince Sergius and princess Helene (1963)

It's really quite unusual to have two twins in one family.

The Hesse twin-sets were also sons of Margarethe of Prussia each (1896/1901). Her grandmother Queen Victoria was apparently quite shocked by the first - she didn't live to see the second part.

I was just up yo changing my previous post, but I got the message I had to log in again Wink Smiley  I wanted to add the following info:


By the way almost the same case for part of the Hesse twins:

Prince Friedrich of Hesse and princess Margaret of Prussia had six children including two sets of twins:
- prince Philipp and prince Wolfgang (1896)
- prince Christoph and prince Richard (1901)

 Yes
Also - Nadedja and Sofia of Russia *3 March 1898 - daughters of Pyotr Nicholaievich and Militza of Montenegro - Sofia didn't survive.

The Hohenzollern are really a family of twins it seems.
