    Can you frame the question correctly? I don't understand what you meant by constructor being inherited? Do you mean to say syntactically or semantically.

    If you don't read the response don't expect any thing more than what you see in replies as thread.

    Consider testing your hypotheses or resolving your questions by writing a small piece of code and checking the outcome. It's a good learning method.
    Code:
    #include<iostream>
    using std::cout;
    using std::endl;
    
    class parent
    {
    public:
        int x;
        parent ()
        {
            cout << "\tThis is the parent constructor" << endl;
            x = 0;
        }
    };
    
    class child: public parent
    {
    public:
        int x;
    };
    
    class sibling: public parent
    {
    public:
        int x;
        sibling ()
        {
            cout << "\tThis is the sibling constructor" << endl;
            x = 2;
        }
    };
    int main()
    {
        cout << "Instantiating the child" << endl;
        child theKid;
        cout << "Instantiating the sibling" << endl;;
        sibling theBro;
        theKid.x = 4;
        cout << "Child x = " << theKid.x << endl;
        cout << "Sibling x = " << theBro.x << endl;
        return 0;
    }
