George Washington fathered no children of his own. He adopted two of his step-grandchildren, who were grandchildren of his wife Martha. Two of her four children by her first husband, who died in 1757, became Washington's step-children. Her son John Parke Custis died of illness during the Revolutionary War.

This is a list of the 42 grandchildren of the British Queen Victoria (1819-1901, queen from 1837, married 1840) and her husband Prince Albert (the Prince Consort, 1819-1861), each of whom was therefore either a sibling or a first cousin to each of the others. It also lists Victoria and Albert's 9 children and 87 great-grandchildren, as well as the spouses of those children and grandchildren who married.
