For the son of Emperor William II, see Prince August Wilhelm of Prussia (1887-1949).
Prince Augustus William of Prussia

Augustus William (German: August Wilhelm; 9 August 1722, Berlin – 12 June 1758, Oranienburg), Prince of Prussia, was the second son of King Frederick William I of Prussia and Sophia Dorothea of Hanover.

He was a younger brother of Wilhelmine of Bayreuth, Frederick II of Prussia and Louisa Ulrika of Prussia.

Augustus was a general in the Silesian Wars.

Because his older brother had no children, his oldest son inherited the throne as King Frederick William II of Prussia.
