    Yes, that's the way to do it, kostas - here's another example:
    Henry VIII's son, Edward VI, died young, and Henry's older daughter, Mary I, married Philip of Spain.
    If you don't like the look of the apostrophe-s, you could always replace it with an 'of' construction. But there's no need to:).
