Prince Louis Charles of Prussia

Prince Louis Charles of Prussia ( _de. Friedrich Ludwig Karl von Preußen) (born Potsdam, 5 November 1773; died Berlin, 28 December 1796) was the second son and third child of Frederick William II of Prussia and Frederika Louisa of Hesse-Darmstadt.

On 26 December 1793 in Berlin, Prince Louis married Duchess Frederica of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, youngest daughter of Charles II, Grand Duke of Mecklenburg-Strelitz and sister of Louise of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, wife of his brother Frederick. They had three children :

* Frederick (30 October 1794 - 27 July 1863); married Princess Luise of Anhalt-Bernburg (1799-1882)

Prince Louis died aged 23 from diphtheria.

His widow went on to marry twice more. In 1798 Frederica married Prince Friedrich of Solms-Braunfels (1770-1814) and, after being widowed again in 1814, she married her first cousin Prince Ernest Augustus of Great Britain in 1815.
