Royal Z II, bred by the well known stud, Zangersheide, epitomizes the successful formula of breeding Ramiro Z to Alme Z mares. As a three year old he was third out of seventeen stallions in the Danish Warmblood 100 day test. Returning to Herning, site of the Danish National Stallion Show, as a five year old Royal Z II won the young horse championship. In 1995, he was named an elite Dansk Varmblod Stallion based on his own performance record as well as the records of his offspring. 

A grand prix jumper in his own right, Royal Z II has sired both top performing dressage horses and showjumpers globally. He has produced licensed stallions in other countries including, RADIANT SKOVGAARD, a world cup winner. While he has sired many main and head studbook mares, he is best known for siring competition horses. These include RADIANT, RESANTO, WELTEN Z ENEMÆRKE and particularly CASTANA ENEMÆRKE who is ranked number 1 worldwide in the top ten list of competition horses. CASTANA won the bronze medal for Dansk Varmblod at the World Breeding Championship. 

At the Danish Warmblood Show, THE VILHELMESBORG INTERNATIONAL 2000, six offspring of ROYAL Z II participated competing against offspring of other top internationally known stallions. No other stallion had so many offspring selected for this invitational show. All six were placed by the judges and the panel gave three awards. One of the judges, the former head of the Swedish National Stud, FLYINGE, declared it to be a remarkable feat given the number of Royal Z II offspring that have been exported. The offspring of Royal Z II are much desired by top competition riders globally. 

Sire: RAMIRO Z The licensed Holsteiner Stallion is the top ranked sire of jumping horses in the World Breeding Federation for Sport Horses Index. Under Fritz Ligges, Ramiro Z won many Grand Prix classes. He has produced 50 licensed stallions among whom include Robin Z II, the Swedish Stallion Robin Z I and Ramses. 

Damsire: ALME Z The licensed Selle Francais Stallion was an international winner in numerous Grand Prix jumping classes. He is sire of the world Champion, Galoubet and the World Cup winner " I Love You" as well as the Zangersheide Stallion, Jalisco B. 

Dam: ALESKA Z Aleska has produced several licensed sons. These include CORDALME and ROYAL Z I.
