Prince Joachim Franz Humbert of Prussia (17 December 1890-18 July 1920) was the youngest son of Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany, by his first wife, Duchess Augusta Viktoria of Schleswig-Holstein.

During the Easter Rising in Dublin, Ireland in 1916 some republican leaders contemplated giving the throne of an independent Ireland to Prince Joachim. [referred to on page 324 in 'Daisy, Princess of Pless' ed. Desmond Chapman-Huston, Murray, London 1928, ASIN: B00086RUJU]

Prince Joachim married Princess Marie-Auguste of Anhalt (10 June 1898 - 22 May 1983), on 11 March, 1916. The couple had one son, the prince Karl Franz Josef Wilhelm Friedrich Eduard Paul (Potsdam 15 Dec 1916-Arica, Chile 22 Jan 1975). His wife Princess Marie-Auguste of Anhalt was to be the adoptive mother of Frédéric Prinz von Anhalt, husband of actress Zsa Zsa Gabor.

After his father's abdication, Joachim was unable to accept his new status as a commoner and fell into a deep depression, finally committing suicide by gunshot on July 18, 1920.
