* Implied that this will happen to Geran and Beldaran in the ''{{Belgariad}}''. Belgarion is a sorcerer just like his 7000-year-old grandfather and is therefore all but immortal. His wife Ce'Nedra is a Dryad and it is suggested that she could easily live hundreds of years as well. The [[DeadpanSnarker Voice of Prophecy]] even takes the time to congratulate Belgarion about the daughters he is still to have (Prophecy clearly states that Geran will be Garion's only son, but says nothing about how many daughters he could potentially have).

* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philippe_I,_Duke_of_Orl%C3%A9ans]], only sibling of UsefulNotes/LouisXIV, puts up a rather less impressive seven children from two marriages (including one stillborn and two that died in childhood), but what makes this impressive is (1) Massive Numbered Cousins--his surviving children, save one, had lots of kids, who went on to marry most of the Catholic royalty of the Continent, leading historians to call him "the grandfather of Europe" and (2) the fact that he was gay, and everyone knew he was gay, but he still got over his probable distaste for it and actually managed to become "the grandfather of Europe." (As a royal, marrying and having children was required, but rather than simply do the minimum he could have gotten away with--having one or two children and not remarrying after his first wife died--he did his full duty and then some.)
