PRINCESS ELISABETH OF HESSE WAS BORN MARCH 11, 1895. SHE WAS THE ONLY DAUGHTER OF GRAND DUKE ERNEST OF HESSE-DARMSTADT AND HIS WIFE VICTORIA MELITA.

Empress Auguste Victoria was the wife of the last German Emperor Wilhelm II – she was born on 22 OCT 1858. History has not dealt kindly with Augusta, recording nothing special about her; she was not intellectual, did not play an instrument, and hero-worshipped her husband. She died in 1921, the shock of exile and abdication, combined with her son's, Prince Joachim, suicide, proved too much for her. The Weimar Republic allowed her remains to be transported to the Temple of Antiquities…

Have recently read about her story, very sad... Princess Cecilie of Greece and Denmark as a bride, 1931. She was one of the current Duke of Edinburgh's sisters. She married Georg Donatus, Hereditary Grand Duke of Hesse, and had 3 children, but she and her husband and children died in an airplane accident over Belgium en route to London. She was only 26 when she died.
