Let's just say that the Habsburgs did not help without greater gain in sight: when Margaret's son Meinhard died, she moved to Vienna and gave Tyrolia to the Habsburgs. She never came back, died in her palace in Vienna soon after.

Not just opposition from her grandmother, Ernst was against it as well. When her grandmother died he was opposed to giving his wife a divorce. Until her death from typhoid, their daughter would split half the year between each parent. Victoria ended all connection to Hesse after her daughter's death.

It is said Ernest Louis was homosexual. She reportedly caught him with a servant when returning from a visit to her sister.


Her second marriage to GD Kiril was much happier. He was her cousin as well, but on her mother's side (her mother was the elder sister of his father, both children of Alexander II). Unfortunately their marriage faced great opposition on Kyril's side due to her being divorced. Tsarina Alexandra was not only her cousin but her former sister in law and completely opposed to Victoria marrying Kiril. After almost dying though in a naval battle Kiril had been determined to marry her. They married only with her mother, sister Beatrice and a friend in attendance. Their Uncle Grand Duke Alexei was invited but he arrived after the ceremony was done. Nicholas II stripped Kiril of all of his positions and ranks in response, and the couple lived in Paris on an income supplied by their parents. He would be restored to his titles in 1910 when deaths in the family led him to be third in line to the throne.


Kiril was unfaithful to her which she learned in 1933 though she kept up the image of happiness for her children, until she died 3 years later.



The couple had three children and 15 grandchildren.



Ernest Louis would remarry as well. His second wife was Princess Eleonore of Solms-Hohensolms-Lich. He married her in 1905. She bore him two sons. Their son George Donatus was married to the Duke of Edinburgh's sister Cecilie. Unfortunately George Donatus would die shortly after his father, with his wife and sons in an airplane crash.

Despite his two sons from his second marriage, Ernest Louis had no grandchildren who reached adulthood. His granddaughter Joanna died died at age three. His second son Louis never had children with his wife, and adopted his cousin Moritz, Landgrave of Hesse, as heir.

It wasn't just Alix who was against the marriage of Kyril and Ducky - the Russian Orthodox Church forbade marriage between first cousins.
