Prince Eitel Friedrich (Wilhelm Eitel Friedrich Christian Karl) (July 7, 1883–December 8, 1942) was a son of Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany by his first wife, Duchess Augusta Viktoria of Schleswig-Holstein. He was both born and died in Potsdam, Germany.

On 27 February 1906 Prince Eitel married "Duchess Sophie Charlotte Holstein-Gottorp of Oldenburg" (2 February 1879 Oldenburg, Germany - 29 March 1964 Westerstede, Germany) in Berlin, Germany. They were divorced 20 October 1926 and had no children.

From 1907-1926 he was Grand Master of the Lutheran Order of St. John (Johanniter-orden).

Prince Eitel was in the front line from the beginning of the First World War and was wounded at Bapaume, where he commanded the Prussian First Foot Guards. He temporarily relinquished command to Count Hans von Blumenthal, but returned to duty before the end of the year. The following year he was transferred to the Eastern Front and during the Summer of 1915, was out in a field in Russia when he had a chance encounter with Manfred von Richthofen (The Red Baron) who had just [ crashed with his superior officer, Count Holck] . The two men were hiding in a nearby tree line from what they thought was the advancing Russian army and who turned out to be the grenadiers, guardsmen, and officers of Prince Eitel. 1921 he was found guilty of fraudulent transfer of 300.000 Mark and sentenced to a fine of 5000 Mark.
