Fun Fact-The Grandmother of Europe

Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland and Empress of India, was, for a long time, known as the "Grandmother of Europe", because her children and grandchildren married different members of the Royalty of other countries. As a result, today, 5 Monarchs are her descendants: from left to right we have H. M. King Harald V of Norway, H. M. King Felipe VI of Spain, H. M. Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom, H. M. King Karl XVI Gustaf of Sweden and H. M. Queen Margrethe II of Denmark. 🇳🇴 🇪🇸 🇬🇧 🇸🇪 🇩🇰

Comments are subject to deletion if they are not germane. I have no problem with a bit of colourful language, but blasphemy or depraved profanity will not be allowed. Attacks on the Catholic Faith will not be tolerated. Comments will be deleted that are republican (Yanks! Note the lower case 'r'!), attacks on the legitimacy of Pope Francis as the Vicar of Christ (I know he's a material heretic and a Protector of Perverts, and I definitely want him gone yesterday! However, he is Pope, and I pray for him every day.), the legitimacy of the House of Windsor or of the claims of the Elder Line of the House of France, or attacks on the legitimacy of any of the currently ruling Houses of Europe.
