After divorcing Ducky in 1901, Ernie married Princess Eleonore Solms-Hohensolms-Lich on 2 February 1905.

Their children:

*Georg Dontus (1906-1937) married Princess Cecile of Prussia (sister of the current Duke of Edinburgh).

*Ludwig (1908-1968). No issue.

Georg and Cecile had four children; 3 perished with them in an airplane accident in 1937; their fourth child, a daughter, died of meningitis in 1939.

Georg Donatus married Cecile of Greece and Denmark, not of Prussia; they died in 1937 together with his mother and theyr two sons Ludwig and Alexander and a third stilborn son, going to London for the wedding of his brother Ludwig and the Hon. Margaret Campbell-Geddes, who later adopted Georg and Cecile's daugter Johanna.

Victoria Melita (who was only Grand Duchess of Hesse and not of Russia, because Orthodox Churh never recognized her marriage to Kirill because they were first cousins) and Kirill had three chidren: Maria, who married Prince Karl of Leiningen, Wladimir and Kira, who married Prince Louis Ferdinand of Prussia, with whom had 7 children, including Marie Cecile, Duchess of Oldenburg, and Louis Ferdinand II, the father of Prince Georg Friedrich of Prussia.

Maria , Wladimir and Kira were not Victoria Melitta's children ?
Marie Ccile of Prussia divorced the Duc of Oldenburg ; Georg's mother Donata is now Duchess of Oldenburg. I never understood why Donata married her ex-brother in law?

Yes, Maria, Kira and Wladimir were Victoria Melita and Kirill's children.

About Marie Cecile, she and Friedrich August divorced, but, if I don't mistake, until she will remarried, she retains the title of Duchess of Oldenburg (like Chantal, Princess of Hannover, the ex-wife of Prince Ernst-August).

Yes, they were, especially the elder Vladmirivitchi, the brothers and sister and mother of Kyril. Kyril and Ducky and children weren't quite as haughty, by any means. It came from Marie Pavlovna, the mother of Kyril.

There is an article about Princess (Granduchess Kira) of Russia, Princess of Prussia in the latest Majesty magazine. Kira was the daughter of the couple discussed here and grandmother of Prince Georg Friedrich of Prussia.

She was formally recognized by Nicholas II as HIH Grand Duchess of Russia when he rescinded their exile and allowed Cyril to return home. The Church had nothing to do with it.
