The Hesse-Darmstadts (Hesse and by Rhine) / The Curse of Hesse
« on: June 18, 2005, 04:16:41 PM »
I have read that there was an ancient curse on the Hesse family.

Does anyone know the origin of this legend?

And could we list the various events contributed to the curse?

Prince Christopher Ivanovich

The Stuarts of Scotland / William III and Prince George of Denmark

Maybe someone here can help me. I've looked but can't seem to find an answer.

When James II's daughters, Mary and Anne, ruled, Mary's husband William of Orange, her first cousin, was made a joint monarch.  They ruled together as William III and Mary II.  When Mary died and then William, Mary's sister Anne succeeded.  Why was her husband, Prince George of Denmark, not also made a joint-monarch, instead of just a prince consort?

Does anyone know if the Grand Duchess Leonida, wife of Grand Duke Vladimir (son of Kyril and Ducky), is still living? If not, where is she buried? Also, I know that her first husband, an American by the name of Mr. Kirby, died in a concentration camp during WWII. What were the circumstances surrounding this? Did she have children by her first marriage and if so, what became of them?

Can anyone provide me with an accurate list of the illegitimate children of James V (the father of Mary Queen of Scots).
I know he had several, by various mothers, but I've never seen a complete list, just certain ones mentioned  in different books.
I am most interested in his illegitimate daughters and who they married.
