Highness in 1844

Let me get this straight: it has been affirmed below that members of this house were originally styled as Serene Highnesses, then became Ducal Serene Highnesses in 1844. This certainly had to be true of the cadet members; but what of sovereigns?
No — they were Ducal Serene Highnesses until 1844 and all Highnesses thereafter (until they got the British HRH).
