This marriage proved to be important to the history of the House of Hanau and the counties of Hanau-Münzenberg and Hanau-Lichtenberg, because her grandson Georg II of Fleckenstein-Dagstuhl played a major rôle during the final phase of the Thirty Years' War. He acted as regent for the underage count Friedrich Casimir, Count of Hanau-Lichtenberg, Hanau-Lichtenberg from 1641 to 1647 and in Hanau-Münzneberg from 1642 to 1647. Georg II achieved the reunification of the two parts of Hanau, despite resistance of the Landgrave of Hesse-Kassel, who was the liege lord of Hanau-Münzenberg.
