Louis II, Grand Duke of Hesse


Louis II, Grand Duke of Hesse

Louis II (26 December 1777, Darmstadt – 16 June 1848, Darmstadt) was "Grand Duke of Hesse and by Rhine" from 1830 until his death. He was the son of Louis I, Grand Duke of Hesse.

By his wife, Wilhelmine of Baden, Louis had four surviving children - Louis III, Prince Charles, Prince Alexander, and Marie, who became Empress consort of Alexander II of Russia. The last four were, however, more likely fathered by Baron August von Senarclens de Grancy, the longtime lover of his wife.
