If anybody wants to see pictures of all the obscure ducalities, there is a very good, thick book about all the lines with pictures and short biographies of all of them from even the most obscure lines. It's in Danish:
"De slesvigske hertuger" (The Schleswigian Dukes), edited by Carsten Porskrog Rasmussen, Inge Adriansen & Lennart S. Madsen. 383 pages, 227 photos (151 in colour, 20 maps, 18 genealogical charts. Price DKK 348,00. Published 2005 by Historisk Samfund for Sønderjylland (Historical Society of South Jutland), http://www.hssdj.dk

I once ordered it through interlibrary loan from Kiel and had a veritable duke fest! A lot of very grotesque-looking wigged Baroque duchesses sporting low ermine décolletages! I know that's your type, Marc :-)
