Royal Engagement: Hesse & By Rhine and Saxe-Coburg and Gotha

January 9, 1894

It's official.  A dispatch from Coburg to the Los Angeles Times states that the Grand Duke of Hesse and By Rhine is "formally betrothed" to his first cousin, Princess Victoria Melita of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha.

Grand Duke Ernst Ludwig and Princess Victoria Melita are both grandchildren of Queen Victoria.
