In the text you refer to the Duchess of Connaught, but you are mixing up two different women. The Duchess of Connaught was wife of the Duke of Connaught (governor General of Canada during world war I). The Duchess was born in 1860 and was a German Princess, and her given name was Louise Margarete. She died in 1917 after her and her husband returned to Britain after his tour as Governor General. The women you refer to as the Duchess of Fife was the daughter-in-law of the above couple. Priness Alexandra Duchess of Fife (born 1891) was married to Prince Arthur of Connaught (born 1883) who was the son of the Duke of Connaught and Luise Margarete. Both father and son had the first name of Arthur and both were a Prince. The father was Duke of Connaught (born 1850) and the third son of Queen Victoria. The son (born 1883) was refered to as Prince Arthur of Connaught, since his father was Prince Arthur, Duke of Connaught. The son died in 1938, the father died in 1942, so the son never inherited his father's Dukedom, since the son predecesed his father. The Duchess of Connaught was ill during much of her husband's term as Governor General of Canada. The daughter- in-law , the Princess Alexandra Duchess of Fife (wife of Prince Arthur of Connaught)was very active as a Nuring Sister in World War One in Britain
