It is with great pleasure that we are able to announce to you that our latest book, The Grand Ducal House of Hesse, has gone to print!

With more than 400 beautiful images, the 336 pages inside the book bring to life the story of the Grand Ducal House of Hesse (and by Rhine), from its beginnings as Landgraves to Hesse-Darmstadt.

The authors, Arturo E. Beéche and Ilana D. Miller, conducted extensive research in several countries and received assistance from several living descendants of of members of this now extinct dynasty.

The story is gripping, tragic, joyful, hopeful. Eurohistory hopes that readers will find the book as spellbinding as the authors intended it to be!
