    1. This isn't a list of everybody. We try to keep it focused on the important, relevant, and interesting royals.
      If we tried to add everyone:

      For Luxembourg: After we added Felix & Claire and their kids, we really ought to all the Grand Duke and Duchess's other kids and grand kids.....And what about the Grand Duke's brothers and sisters, and their spouses, and kids and grand kids...... (We would have to be up to at least 40 people by then).... And then there is Grand Duke Jeans siblings, their spouses and kids and grandkids, etc. The line of succession goes on forever.

      For each Royal Family we had to figure out where to stop. Which is a tough task and we looked at each royal family individually. With Luxembourg, we decided to only include Jean, Henri, Maria Teresa, Guillaume, and Stephanie.
