Royal descendants of John William Friso, Prince of Orange

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
John William Friso is an ancestor of all the currently reigning royal houses in Europe.

The descendants of Johan William Friso of Nassau-Dietz, Prince of Orange and his wife Landgravine Marie Louise of Hesse-Kassel currently occupy all the hereditary thrones[1] of Europe, as well as some former ones. Unlike Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom (the Grandmother of Europe, with nine children) or King Christian IX of Denmark (a Father-in-law of Europe, with six children), John William Friso had only one daughter and one posthumously-born son, died at the age of twenty-four, and had no kings or queens descended from him for a century after his death. However, since then, every surviving monarchy in Europe has seen his blood embodied on its throne.

[edit] Royal descendants

Contents

John William Friso is the most recent common ancestor of today's European monarchs. The first king to be descended from him was William I of the Netherlands, who as King of the United Netherlands and Grand Duke of Luxembourg from 1815 ruled all of present-day Benelux until Belgium's independence in 1830. All descent from him is cognatic, as the male-line House of Orange-Nassau died out with William I's great-granddaugther Queen Wilhelmina in 1962. The first monarch (other than a stadtholder) descended from John William Friso was his grandson Karl Friedrich, Margrave of Baden from 1738 and eventually Grand Duke of Baden.

By the end of the Second World War most of Europe's remaining crowned heads were John William Friso's descendants. With the abolition of the monarchy in Albania, all remaining ruling monarchs in Europe were descended from this Prince of Orange, a state of affairs that endures.

  2. William IV, Prince of Orange
