Princess of Hesse and by Rhine Irene


German royalty, third child and daughter of Ludwig IV, Grand Duke of Hesse and by Rhine and Princess Alice of England. She was born at the end of the Austro-Prussian War, her name derived from the Greek word for "peace".

She married her cousin Prince Heinrich of Prussia on 24 May 1888, while his father was dying of throat cancer. Two of their three children were haemophiliacs who died from their disease. Her little brother Friedrich had died of the disease, and her younger sister Alix, who married Tsar Nicholas II of Russia, had a son with the same condition.

She died on 11 November 1953.
