One of the things I just loved about Darmstadt was the feeling of history there.  There is a lovely memorial to Princess Elisabeth in a park next to one of the palaces (it's the one with the ceramics for those who know the place).  You have the feeling that the town is still grieving for her, just as you have the feeling that Ernie really left his imprint on the town with all the architecture and artistic additions he made.  They feel very close...

I know this may have been answered but I can no longer find it, Are there any memorials or such during the time when the Park is open to the Public.  Isn't it in May?  Is Elizabeth still memorialized along with her family?

I just came across something really strange while looking up something else, thought I'd share this. Maybe it was discussed before?!

Did anyone ever notice that  Marie/May  (Ernst-Ludiwgs sister), Elisabeth (ELs daughter) and the Ostende victims (ELs wife,son,Daughter in Law,etc) all died on the same date!!  16. November. According to the dates in the family tree printed in my book.

May 1878, Elisabeth 1903, Ostende victims 1937

Yes, it's been referenced before as part of the "Hesse Curse" and the 2 fatal days. I think David Duff brought it up in Hessian Tapestry. Eerie.

I noticed the dates by look through the book "GroƟherzog Ernst Ludwig" by Dr. Max Wauer.  I only knew about the 14. Dezember (Prinz Alberts & Alice's death) and not about the Hessen-family. 

Some Battenbergs/v Hessen u. b. Rhein familymembers are also very close to the dates -

Prinz Alexander von Hessen und bei Rhein + 15. Dez 1888

his son Alexander (Sandro) von Battenberg, later Count Hartenau +17. November 1893.
On this date in 1885 he (as Sovereign of Bulgaria) and his small army defeated the Serbian Army in the famous battle of Slevniza.-but thats a different story - i.m.o also very interesting.

Did the Hesse family had any realization about the coincidences of the unfortunate events that always happened during the November months? Was there such conversations, diary entries or letters between the family or other relations and friends?

Here is a slightly better image of an attractive picture of the princess shown above:


The photograph was probably taken at the same time as this one (a favourite of mine), which shows her wearing the same dress:

I literallly gasped with shock when I read this. How eerie, ironic and strange. I wonder if there is some dreadful meaning behind it.

In Victorian times it would have taken into consideration though. The ever present "Hesseian curse" !  :(
