Re: Duke and princes

The style Grand Ducal Highness ranked above Highness - I know it appears confusing. If in doubt, go by the style: HRH before HGDH, HGDH before HH, HH before HSH
In that case, why were cadet members of large grand duchies (e.g. Baden) styled with the title Prince(ss), with the qualification of Grand Ducal Highness, while cadet members of smaller grand duchies (e.g. Oldenburg) were styled with the title Duke/Duchess, with the qualification of Highness?
