Prussian lord, a member of the House of Hesse, and the last ruling Landgrave of Hesse-Philippsthal.
Ernst was the eldest son of the Landgrave Karl II of Hesse-Philippsthal (1803-1868) from his marriage to Mary (1818-1888), a daughter of Duke Eugen of Württemberg.
After the Electorate of Hesse including Hesse-Philippsthal was annexed by Prussia in 1866, Ernst resigned on all subsequent claims on Hesse-Philippsthal in 1868, together with Landgrave Alexis of Hesse-Philippsthal-Barchfeld. In 1880, he received as compensation an annual income of 300000marks, plus the City Castle in Hanau, Rotenburg Castle and Schönfeld Castle in Kassel.
Ernst died on 22 December 1925 unmarried and without descendants. With his death, the main Hesse-Philippsthal line of the House of Hesse died out; only the junior lines Hesse-Philippsthal-Barchfeld and Hesse-Kassel-Rumpenheim remained.
