Landgrave Philip III of Hesse-Butzbach (1581-1643) was Landgrave of Hesse-Butzbach from 1609 to 1643. Since both of his marriages were childless, the Landgraviate of Butzbach fell back to Hesse-Darmstadt after just one generation.

The Landgraviate of Hesse was divided by Landgrave Ludwig I of Hesse between his sons Ludwig II and Henry III into Hesse-Kassel (Lower Hesse) and Hesse-Marburg (Upper Hesse). Ludwig II and Henry III fought about the exact demarcation of the realm until 1470.

My Dad once met one of the Hesse-Princesses shortly after WWII. Sadly he doesn't remember (if he ever knew!) which one she was...

I can recommend the book "Royals and the Reich. The Princes von Hessen in Nazi Germany" by Jonathan Petropoulos (who also wrote excellent books about the art world in NS Germany). The book covers far more ground than the title suggests but it also gives a fair assessment of the involvement of the house of Hessen in NS politics. Hitler used the well-connected high aristocracy to acquire a veneer of respectability but once he didn't need them any more, dropped the princes like hot potatoes.

https://www.amazon.de/Roy...sen-Germany/dp/0195339274

The dynamics between the six Hessen princes and their parents is described, and especially Christoph and Philipp turn into real persons for the reader. I'm a big fan of their liberal, intelligent grandmother, Empress Frederick, and found it horrifying to read how from that heritage, her grandsons (some of them) turned into Nazis. The author shows how that happened.

The house Hesse is closely and in many ways related to the more famous and powerful houses of Windsor and Romanov (and all the others...), its members are cultivated and highly educated and anything but provincial. Very interesting.

The line of Hesse-Darmstadt was part of the morganatic line of the Battenberg family when Prince Alexander of Hesse and by Rhine married Countess Julia Hauke.

For anyone who is interested in the Hessian royal family (and their offshoot the Battenbergs) I highly recommend Hessian Tapestry by David Duff. It is very well written and full of interesting information and some photos that I haven't found anywhere else. Princess Alice is my favorite of Victoria's children so in studying about her I came across Duff's book which turned up in many of the bibliographies. It even has a fold-out family tree that is really impressive (if intact).

I agree it is a very good book - very readable

Is the art collection of the House of Hesse private or is it somewhere on public display?
