Princess Frederica Wilhelmina Louise Amalia of Prussia (30 September 1796 - 1 January 1850) was a daughter of Prince Louis Charles of Prussia and Frederica of Mecklenburg-Strelitz.[1] She was a member of the House of Hohenzollern.

They had six children:

Frederica died on 1 January 1850 in Dessau.[1] Leopold would die eleven years later, on 22 May 1871.
