German prince, the heir-apparent to the Electorate of Brandenburg.
He was the second son of Frederick William, Elector of Brandenburg. Born on his father's thirty-fifth birthday after six years of unsuccessful pregnancies for his mother Countess Luise Henriette of Nassau, he was much hoped-for, looked like his father and was raised to be like him - spirited, quick-tempered and always in favour of war and the hunt.
In 1670 he was made colonel of the Regiment Radziwiłł zu Fuß and four years later he and his father headed the Brandenburg force on its incursion into Alsace during the Franco-Dutch War. He died of dysentery on 7 December 1674 in Strasbourg.
