I'm going from memory here, and I think you can see it if you read PeDe's posts carefully, but a major through line for many monarchies is Denmark. I think at one time the Queen of Denmark had a child on nearly every throne in Europe.

you are most welcome, ladies  Curtsey

I think the old guard is the last bastion of being really related....the newer generation are mostly commoners married in. And in time the close relations will move further and further away, unless the little ones now decide to marry a royal again.

Rather interesting, no?!?

Yes it is interesting PeDe.  Thank you so much!  Star

To my knowledge Christian IX of Denmark and Victoria of GB got the resp. nicknames: father in law of Europe and grandmother of Europe. Based on how their descendants mingled into European royalty and nobility

Wow, fantastic work PeDe, we should have an archive ref. section in which we put such info for a quick research and refresher.
BTW, there is a fantastic YouTube program on the descendants of this Grandfather of Europe. Very interesting...

Yes, that's true. And even before them there was Philippe I, Duke of Orléans. He was "a very feminine man" and actually openly gay but there he is, referred to as “the grandfather of Europe” because his descendants are to be found in so many surviving royal families.
