"Von Hessen und bei Rhein" is correct but the confusion is understandable. In general speak the historic principality is still best known as Hessen-Darmstadt.

For three centuries it was the Landgraftschaft Hessen-Darmstadt (principality of the Landgrave of Hessen-Darmstadt). In 1806 it became the Grand Duchy of Hessen but already in 1871 it became "just" a memberstate in the Reich.

Even under the Grand-Duchy itself there was confusion with the old name, with references to the "Grand Duke of Hessen-Darmstadt" while indeed the princes and princesses were known as "Von Hessen und bei Rhein".

The glorious era of independent and strong Hessen-Darmstadt was (and is still) overshadowing the somewhat non-descript short intermezzo of the Von Hessen und bei Rhein era.

Can anyone tell me if her son Ernie has his own thread? I'm just wondering about the gay rumors and that they all come from one source-his ex wife
