KR have 9 children and is (now) a very known homosexual. I think Ella had some fertility problems.
One of Ella's biographer's-I think it was Coryne Hall?-has speculated that the marriage of Ella and Serge was never consummated even though they shared a bed.

She pretty much accepts as fact that Serge was unable to have relations with his wife due to his homosexuality.

My dear Brazilian Empress,

I believe the three granddaughters were Ella, who married Grand Duke Sergei; Alix, who married Tsar Nicholas II and Victoria Melita ("Ducky"), who married Grand Duke Cyril, her cousin through her mother's line. Ducky was first married to Ernie, a Grand Duke of Hesse, her cousin through her father's line and then she divorced him to marry Cyril, whom Ducky had always loved but married Ernie to please her grandmother, Queen Victoria.

Was Elisabeth (Elizabeth) of Hesse considered as a possible bride for a Swedish prince? If Yes, who was the Prince of Sweden?
In The Mad Monarchist, Royal Saint: Princess Elizabeth of Hesse article mentioned:

In their first years of marriage, the new Grand Duchess Elizabeth Feodorovna of Russia continued to be a Lutheran.
However, over time, certainly with the example of her husband helping, she became convinced of the beauty and authenticity of the Orthodox faith and in 1891 she decided to formally convert and join the Russian Orthodox Church.

Is 1891 the correct year that Grand Duchess Elisaveta converted?
