Well, all this in-breeding resulted in Charles II, a king who was mentally retarded and couldn't have children. Since he didn't have a kid and the families had all inter-married, a bunch of people from other kingdoms started claiming the throne. A war broke with France and Spain fighting The Holy Roman Empire, Britain, Prussia, and a bunch of other countries.
