Uncle-niece marriage in Europe
September 11, 2009 5:31 PM Subscribe
I was looking at this chart
of the ancestry of Charles II of Spain. There are quite a few uncle-niece marriages in his family tree. Presumably, at the time, this was permissible under Spanish or Austrian laws. When did uncle-niece marriage start to be considered incestuous in Europe?
