Princess Friederike Luise of Prussia (German: Friederike Luise von Preußen) (born Berlin, 29 August 1714; died Schwaningen, 4 February 1784) was a daughter of Frederick William I of Prussia and Sophia Dorothea of Hanover.

Family

Friederike Luise as a child, 1716

Friederike Luise was the sixth child and third daughter of Frederick William I of Prussia and his wife Sophia Dorothea of Hanover. She was a sister of Frederick II of Prussia, Queen Louisa Ulrika of Sweden, and Philippine Charlotte, Duchess of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel.

Through her mother, she was a granddaughter of George I of Great Britain. This thus made her a niece of George II of Great Britain and a cousin of Frederick, Prince of Wales, Anne, Princess of Orange, and Queen Louise of Denmark and Norway.

Marriage and children

On 30 May 1729 in Berlin, Friederike Luise married her Hohenzollern kinsman Karl Wilhelm Friedrich, Margrave of Brandenburg-Ansbach (12 May 1712 - 3 August 1757). They had four children :

  • Karl Friedrich August (7 April 1733 - 9 May 1737)
  • Christian Frederick (24 February 1736 - 5 January 1806). Married firstly Caroline Friederike von Sachsen-Coburg-Saalfeld, and after her death, Lady Elizabeth Craven.
  • Wilhelmine Eleonore (20 September 1743 - 1768)
  • Louise Charlotte (27 April 1746 - 31 January 1747)

Their daughters Wilhelmine Eleonore and Louise Charlotte received palaces and the titles Freiherren and Freiinen von Falkenhausen. Their second son Christian succeeded his father Karl as Margrave of Brandenburg-Ansbach after he died from a stroke on August 2 1757.
