I like to think of both Finland and Estonia kingdoms.
BTW you counted just one Hesse,
Shouldn't it be two ? Hesse-Kassel and Hesse-Darmstadt ?
And the Schleswig-Holsteins ? Glucksburg and Augustenburg.
Estonia was not a kingdom. Finland and Lithuania's processes to functional monarchy were never completed - aborted before birth, so to speak.
Hesse-Kassel was absorbed by Prussia in 1866 along with two other monarchies: Nassau & Hanover (and newly extinct Hesse-Homburg was snatched by Prussia from Hesse-Darmstadt). By that time, the province of Schleswig-Holstein had already been fully absorbed by Prussia. So these monarchies were not ended due to WWI.
