EUROHISTORY: The Grand Ducal House of Hesse (Summer 2020)

For several years, Arturo E. Beéche and Ilana D. Miller have collaborated on yet another royal history project. Their previous collaborations include several books, among them: The Four Graces (by Ilana D. Miller), and Royal Gatherings I and Royal Gatherings II (by Arturo E. Beéche and Ilana D. Miller). She remains a regular contributor to EUROHISTORY, the royalty journal published by Mr. Beéche since 1997!

This time, these two well-known authors bring us to the Grand Ducal House of Hesse, the descendants of the Hesse and by Rhine (Hesse-Darmstadt) branch of the Hessian dynasty!

As the book’s text is completed, revised, and edited, layout work has started. The book’s cover is presented to you here…
