Charles Louis, Hereditary Prince of Baden

Charles Louis, Hereditary Prince of Baden (February 14, 1755 – December 16, 1801) was heir apparent of the Margraviate of Baden. He was born in Karlsruhe.

He was the son of Margrave Charles Frederick (who in 1803, after his death, became the elector and in 1806 1st Grand Duke of Baden) and Landgravine Karoline Luise of Hesse-Darmstadt (July 11, 1723 - April 8, 1783), the daughter of Landgrave Louis VIII of Hesse-Darmstadt.

Charles Louis married his first cousin Landgravine Amalie of Hesse-Darmstadt (June 20, 1754 – July 21, 1832, on July 15, 1774. She was the daughter of Landgrave Louis IX of Hesse-Darmstadt.

They had eight children:

  • Amalie (July 13, 1776 – October 26, 1823)
  • Charles Frederick (September 13, 1784 – March 1, 1785)

Works of history mention that his children succeeded well in marriage market and that the hereditary prince was the force behind that. At the time of his death in Arboga, Sweden (which occurred during the visit to his fourth daughter, the Queen of Sweden), two of his other daughters were, respectively, Electress of Bavaria and the newly ascended Empress of Russia.
