Hesse-Darmstadt was a German noble family.  When the Hanau-Lichtenberg line was extinguished in 1736 its lands were inherited by Hesse-Darmstadt.

Darmstadt was the residence (capital) of the ruling landgraves (1567–1806) and of the Grand Dukes of Hesse (1806-1918).

A history in English may be found at the Wikipedia article Landgraviate of Hesse-Darmstadt.
